OG to replace FORZE at IEM Cologne 2023
Tournament operator ESL took it to Twitter to announce the next change in the team list for the upcoming IEM Cologne 2023. As a result, the European team OG will replace FORZE, which will not be able to take part in the tournament.
Andrey "Jerry" Mekhryakov's squad is reportedly forced to miss the event due to visa issues. This is not the first change in the team list since Complexity replaced paiN last week.
OG will kick off the tournament from the Play-In stage. At the same time, the organizers have not yet disclosed the seeding of the event.
IEM Cologne 2023 will take place from July 26 to August 6. At the tournament, participants will compete for a $1 million prize pool and a spot at IEM Katowice 2024, which will be secured by the winner.
