Esports News UK is teaming up with Predator Gaming for a very special IEM Katowice 2024 viewing party in London.
Intel Extreme Masters (IEM) is a flagship series of events in the Counter-Strike calendar, organised by ESL Faceit Group (EFG). The latest event, IEM Katowice 2024, is underway now – and the final is fast approaching.
We’ll be hosting a viewing party for the grand final at Platform’s gaming bar at Canary Wharf, 1 Crossrail Place, Unit CR40, London, E14 5AR.
It will take place on Sunday February 11th 2024, with doors opening at 3.30pm GMT, in time for the opening ceremony.
LED walls and monitors will broadcast the esports celebration’s grand finals exclusively via the Faceit Watch streaming platform, which can display the main broadcast and up to four different player perspectives at once to provide an immersive viewing experience.
Acer will also showcase its Predator OrionX Gaming PC, Acer SpatialLabs 27” Gaming Monitor plus other PCs and monitors – and run competitions on the night.
Tickets are limited to 100, and will include a token for a free beer, soft drink or applicable cocktail, plus a selection of free pizzas, nachos and ice cream, on a first come first served basis.
Additional drinks will of course be available throughout the night from the venue’s two bars.
Several streamers and influencers will also be attending on the night and hosting ticket giveaways to their followers. They include Westie, Stodeh, Tactical Brit and Fozzii.
Esports News UK will also be covering IEM Katowice 2024 in Poland, with Hannah Marie and Reece Barrett producing content for the site, and Predator Gaming on board as our exclusive coverage partner throughout the event.
