IEM Katowice 2023 Playoffs Preview

IEM Katowice has finally reached the Quarter-Finals stage where teams will have to travel to the Spodek Arena for their continued involvement in this competition. With some heavy hitters out of the way early on, we have a mixed bag of big names and dark horses who will take it out on each other.


On opening day at Spodek Arena, two giants from CIS, namely NAVI and Outsiders battle it out for a spot in the Semi-finals. Outsiders have failed to replicate their form from Major which led to Twitter calling their Rio triumph a fluke and NAVI, on the other hand, is going through a tough time with a fresh face on the team. Both teams are far from their Apex which calls for a very dicey match but with the amount of raw latent on the server, the match with be anything but boring. The winner progresses to meet HEROIC in the semi-finals on Saturday.

Liquid vs Vitality on match is what promises to be one of the best matches of this tournament so far. Vitality having displayed great form with ZyWoo firing on all cylinders take on Liquid who are on a climb in form ever since the addition of YEKINDAR. Liquid took down FaZe in incredible fashion while Vitality was able to brush off anything thrown at them with the exception of Heroic in the Upper Bracket match. The winner of this fixture will face G2 Esports who by far are the favourites to go all the way.

IEM Katowice has delivered so far and the upcoming stages will have the essence of a grand arena. Spodek in the past has produced some of the most memorable moments in CSGO history which makes it one of the most prestigious trophies even for the most accomplished.

The teams that have made it all the way here are no pushovers which are why every match will be equally thrilling and the Polish crowd adding to the hype of the tournament in every round of every match.
