The international CS:GO calendar resumes with IEM Dallas, a $250,000 tournament with some of the best teams in the world. Keep up with the North American LAN event right here with the latest schedule, results, and information on how to watch. 


  • Cloud9 win first tournament by dominating ENCE
  • 3-0 sweep: 16-12, 16-11, and 16-3 scorelines
  • Ax1Le named MVP

Just one week after PGL Major Antwerp came to a close, the international CS:GO calendar resumes with IEM Dallas. The week-long tournament will take place at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, with 16 teams vying for the lion’s share of a $250,000 prize pool.

Visa issues and the global health crisis have seen IEM Dallas lose some of its must-see appeal, with NAVI, Entropiq and Heroic all forced to withdraw from the event. Others, like NIP and ENCE, will have to field stand-ins.

After winning the PGL Antwerp Major, FaZe Clan were eliminated in 5-6th by Cloud9 at IEM Dallas.

It was FaZe’s title to lose — and Cloud9 really showed up to them. After winning the last three international events, including the Major, FaZe Clan couldn’t continue their rampage towards the Intel Grand Slam.
