Tournament operator ESL took it to Twitter to announce seeding for the IEM Rio 2023 group stage, which will play out in Brazil from April 17-23 at Jeunesse Arena, which hosted last year's Major.

16 teams are divided into two groups, where they will compete in a Double Elimination format. The best-of-three openers will be followed by the best-of-one matches. The top three participants from each group will advance to the playoff stage, which will take place in a Single Elimination best-of-three format with a best-of-five final. The winners will get through to the semi-finals, while the runner-ups on second and third places will start the tournament's decisive stage from the quarter-finals.
