IEM Cologne 2021 Completed

IEM Cologne 2021

Jul 8, 2021Jul 18, 2021

Formerly known as ESL One Cologne, ESL and IEM have now merged this prestigious tournament, which from now on will be called IEM Cologne. But all the factors that made ESL One Cologne great, such as the arena, teams, fans, and the astonishing Lanxess Arena are still here!

The tournament will feature an enormous prize pool consisting of  $1,000,000 USD, which we are sure all the teams will be extremely motivated to get their share of.

Everyone has been cheated of attending this great event last year, which unfortunately will happen again at this IEM Cologne 2021. Hopefully merging together with IEM, they can come up with some cool concepts to compensate for not having a live audience.

No matter what, this event will bring all the hype, anticipation, and excitement we have been getting used to from previous years - so sit back, relax and be ready!
