Last month, tournament organizer ESL celebrated ten years of IEM.

“This event represents a dream come true to everyone that wanted to build esports into something bigger and unforgettable memories shared by fans and players,” said Michal ‘Carmac’ Blicharz, VP of product development at ESL.

“We are proud to be coming to Katowice again as an in-person competition and we are so looking forward to celebrating the commemorative anniversary together.”
