IEM Winter will be the next CS:GO event and will feature many familiar faces from the last two months.

IEM Winter 2021 is set to take place from December 2nd to the 12th. The event will be held in Stockholm, Sweden, in a LAN event with live fans. The tournament will feature two groups of eight, with only three qualifying for the playoffs. The sixteen teams include: Vitality, G2 Esports, Gambit, Heroic, NiP,, FaZe Clan, Astralis, Team Liquid, ENCE, OG, BIG, MOUZ, Fnatic. GODSENT, and TYLOO.

Most notably, the recent Major winners and BLAST Premier Champions, Na’Vi will be absent as will be the sole CIS representative. Without the current first ranked team in the world present, there is plenty of opportunity for other teams to make their mark.
