OG to Replace FORZE at IEM Cologne
The organizers of IEM Cologne 2023 have announced a change in the lineup of participants.
Due to visa issues, FORZE, who qualified for the tournament via the ESL World Ranking, are forced to skip the competition. In their place, OG have been given a slot in the Play-in.
IEM Cologne 2023 will take place in Germany from July 26 to August 6. 24 teams will compete for a prize pool of $1,000,000, with 16 of them starting the tournament at the Play-in stage. The winner will not only earn $400,000 but will also receive an invitation to IEM Katowice 2024.
The IEM Cologne organizers have not yet announced the schedule of matches.
