ESL announces dates for IEM Brazil 2023

Tournament operator ESL has shared some details in a press release of IEM Brazil 2023, which was announced in November last year. The big event will take place on April 17-23 in Rio de Janeiro, where sixteen teams will compete for $250,000 in prize money.

The organizers will hand out eleven direct invites. Five other participants will be determined once the qualifiers are played out.

The qualifying tournaments, which will consist of two open qualifiers and one closed qualifier, will be held from January 21 to February 16 in Europe, North America, South America and Asia. The European squads will battle out two spots at the tournament while the rest of the regions will receive one each.

As of now, the championship's format and other details, which ESL will give shortly, remain unknown.
