ESL revealed the groups for the 24-player main event stage of IEM Katowice. One spot in each of the groups will be filled with a player from the play-in stage.
The format of the IEM Katowice 2021 main event is identical to that of past events, with the RO24 round-robin group stage (four groups of six players) followed by a 12-player single-elimination bracket.
IEM Katowice will be held from February 20th to February 28th, with $250,000 in total prize money on the line. Due to ongoing complications from the global pandemic, the competition will be held entirely online (more info here).
