IEM Katowice betting 2024

The Intel Extreme Masters is one of a few tournaments that has run for over a decade now on the esports professional scene, with their first collaboration with ESL coming in 2006 when they organised an IEM for Counter-Strike 1.6 and Warcraft III.

Throughout its history, IEM Katowice has been an official CS:GO Major twice, in 2014 and 2019. Even though IEM Katowice isn’t an official CS:GO Major every year, it is still considered one of the most prestigious events on the Counter-Strike calendar.
