IEM Katowice is one of Counter-Strike’s biggest events. Returning to Poland again for 2022, 24 teams will duke it out for a share of $1 million, including $400,000 for the winners.
The 24 teams descending on the Spodek for IEM Katowice 2022 are split into two seeds; eight teams going right through to the Main Event, and 16 teams who have to tackle the Play-In gauntlet.
All the big names are here. NAVI, Gambit, G2 Esports, and Vitality have pushed through to the Main Event, and so too Liquid. Ninjas in Pyjamas, Astralis, and MIBR will have to get through Play-Ins first. There has been one change ahead of the event: Chinese team TYLOO has been forced to pull out, with Sprout taking their place.
