IEM New York is ready to start, and we thought a brief reminder of what's to come in the European section of the tournament is a good idea. In short, eight teams will be in the running for a chunk of the $140,000 allocated to the region.
IEM New York 2020 kicks off tomorrow, October 6 and, as it is customary in these dark times, it will be held entirely online. A total of eight teams will compete until Sunday for a prize pool of $140,000. Besides, the 6 directly invited teams are Heroic and OG, who emerged from the closed qualifiers.
IEM New York Group Stage
The contestants are divided into two groups of four:
