Many of the world’s best CS:GO teams are set to clash at the IEM World Championship in Katowice from February 24 to March 1, and here’s everything you need to know to catch all the action.

IEM Katowice acts as the World Championship event of the IEM series, offering a $500,000 prize pool which is double that of other IEM events.

Sixteen teams will compete for the lion’s share of that prize, with a double-elimination group stage running from February 24 to February 27, before the top six teams compete in a single-elimination playoff from February 28 to March 1.

IEM Katowice is also one of the premier events in the Intel Grand Slam that teams must win if they wish to collect the $1,000,000 bonus prize with only four event wins. If a team’s run of victories does not include IEM Katowice, ESL One Cologne, or an ESL or DreamHack-run Major, they must instead win six of the other qualifying events within the window in order to claim the grand slam.

As it stands, five teams have one victory each in the grand slam – Team Liquid, Evil Geniuses, Fnatic, Astralis, and Mousesports. All five teams will be in attendance at IEM Katowice.

Here’s everything you need to know about the event.
