Zeus is selected as Trophy Bearer at IEM Katowice 2020

It’s an IEM tradition for a legendary player to lift the Trophy upon the podium; it signals the start of an incredible competition, one that only ends when the Champions raise it again in absolute victory.

This year it will be Zeus, ex Na’Vi Captain and two-time IEM winner, undertaking the role. Having led an incredible career over the span of a whopping 17 years, we wanted to get to know this Counter-Strike veteran before IEM Katowice later this month!

Zeus announced the decision to end his career as a professional player back in September last year. He has won many prestigious tournaments, including the Intel Extreme Masters championships in 2010 and 2011, throughout his career. A few days earlier, the 32-year-old Ukrainian announced that there is a possibility of his return to the professional stage.

IEM Katowice 2020 will take place from February 24 to March 1 at the Spodek Arena in Katowice, Poland. Sixteen teams will fight for the $500,000 prize fund.
