IEM Beijing-Haidian 2020 will start tomorrow in both Europe and North America.

The CS:GO event will have to be played online due to the coronavirus pandemic, with the European tournament looking unarguably stronger. IEM Beijing-Haidian has been split into four regions in total: Europe, North America, Asia, and Oceania.

Sixteen CS:GO teams will be playing in it from Europe, while the North American event will have only eight participants. The list includes some of the best CS:GO teams in the world, such as Heroic, Vitality, Astralis, Natus Vincere, BIG, OG, G2, Evil Geniuses, and Team Liquid.

Here’s everything you need to know about IEM Beijing-Haidian Europe and North America.

Stream

You can watch all of the IEM Beijing-Haidian action on ESL’s Twitch channel. There won’t be any simultaneous matches, so you just need to know when your favorite teams are playing.

Format

ESL has split the European teams into two double-elimination groups of eight. All of the matches will be best-of-three series and the top four teams from each group will advance to the playoffs. The North American tournament will follow the same format, but the teams were split into two groups of four, with the top two teams proceeding to the playoffs.

In both regions, ESL will use a single-elimination bracket for the playoffs. All of the matches will be played as a best-of-three, except the grand finals, which will feature a best-of-five series. ESL will distribute $150,000 of the prize pool to Europe and $50,000 to North America.
