The amazing crowds of the 2015 IEM Expo in Katowice

We’d like to take this moment to convey our profound gratitude to the thousands of fans who streamed into Spodek to watch the tournaments of the IEM Expo live in Katowice. Their massive success would not have been possible without the unbelievable crowd at Spodek - the turnout and enthusiasm of the fans went beyond our wildest expectations, turning the weekend into a record-setting spectacles for the ages both on and off the screen.

It’s hard to convey the epic proportions of the IEM Expo in Katowice with words, so instead here are some of the best shots of the crowd from the Intel Extreme Masters weekend so you can experience the atmosphere for yourself!
