The 2016 Starcraft 2 Proleague Round 3 Grand Final will be held at IEM Shanghai, the first time a Starcraft 2 Proleague event will take place outside of Korea, Intel Extreme Masters announced Thursday.

The 2016 SC2 Proleague Round 3 features seven teams competing in a series of best-of-five matches across six weeks. Each team fields a different player for each game in the match. The top four teams will advance to the Playoffs, with the two best teams competing in a best-of-seven Grand Final.

“KeSPA has been a part of the StarCraft esports scene in Korea for more than ten years,” Michal Blicharz, head of IEM said in a statement. “We are extremely honored that they have chosen IEM Shanghai to host their first event ever outside of Korea. I expect we will see some intense competition in the Grand Finals.”
