ESL have revealed the first few teams that will participate in next year’s IEM Katowice. Two CIS teams – Gambit Esports and Natus Vincere – are two teams who have been invited to the tournament’s group stage.

Both Gambit and NAVI received their invites due their recent results in the ESL events – NAVI are the champions of recent IEM XVI – Cologne and ESL Pro League 14, while Gambit recently won the RMR-event IEM XVI – Fall: CIS, as well as finished 5th – 8th at both IEM Cologne and EPL 14.

Besides that, ESL have also invited the leaders of the Oceanian and the Asian regions – Renegades and TyLoo. These teams however will start competing from the Play-In stage.
