ESL has announced the details for the qualifiers for the Intel Extreme Masters World Championship in Katowice.

The Spodek Arena, in Katowice, will stage from March 2-6 the World Championship, an event which will mark the end of the current Intel Extreme Masters season.

Three of the final four spots will be filled through regional qualifiers, while the last place will go to the winner of the Asian Minor Championship, the Intel Extreme Masters Taipei.
