The match-ups for IEM Katowice 2020 have been announced.
IEM Katowice 2020 is the first big tournament of the new season, with all of the top teams from each region competing. The top sixteen teams from around the world will be duking it out over a $500,000 prize pool in Katowice, Poland. IEM Katowice 2020 will take place on February 24 - March 1.
The tournament will begin in group stages made up of teams of eight. Both groups will play in a best-of-three double-elimination bracket with the winners advancing to the semi-finals and second and third-placed teams advancing to quarter-finals.
Here are the groups:
- Natus Vincere
- Evil Geniuses
- 100 Thieves
- MAD Lions
Each group seems to be pretty balanced, with maybe a slight edge to Group A as the harder one due to Astralis and FaZe. But, Group B also has Liquid and mousesports who should be teams we see make a deep run.
The initial match-ups to open IEM Katowice 2020 will be:
- 5:00 CST - Astralis vs. Cloud9
- 5:00 CST - NiP vs. Vitality
- 8:30 CST - Natus Vincere vs. FaZe
- 8:30 CST - Renegades vs. fnatic
- 12:00 CST - mousesports vs. ViCi
- 12:00 CST - 100 Thieves vs. G2
