Can NA finally show up at IEM Cologne?

IEM Cologne 2024 sells out

IEM Cologne has once again completely sold out as the Lanxess Arena gets ready to host one of the year's biggest tournaments later this August.

IEM Cologne is a highlight on the esports calendar, with fans, teams, and the entire community tuning in to watch the best teams from across the globe battle it out for the German event.

North American fans will want to tune is as both Liquid and Complexity will be in attendance, accompanied by five South American squads who were able to qualify.

Cologne will be one of Liquid's first tournaments with their re-tooled roster after saying goodbye to Casper "cadiaN" Møller, Felipe "skullz" Medeiros, and coach Wilton "zews" Prado. The team is currently reported to be bringing in the much-sought after Australian Justin "jks" Savage alongside the unknown Roland "ultimate" Tomkowiak. Torbjørn "mithR" Nyborg has reportedly been chosen to lead the team as the organization hopes to make the Major via ranking points after just missing out earlier this year.

Complexity will head into the event having retained their starting lineup. The organization hopes that its win in Jönköping just before the player break will propel it to future success with an eye on Cologne as a major opportunity for the squad.

Finally, teams like 9z, FURIA, paiN, Imperial, and MIBR will make it seven total Americas teams in the competition and looking to make a splash on the global stage.
