The next Intel Extreme Masters stop for CS:GO in San Jose, California has had its first two teams announced for the $100,000 tournament, as well as the official format.
IEM San Jose will take place inside the SAP Center Arena, or "The Shark Tank," from November 21-22 in San Jose, California and offer $100,000 via its CS:GO tournament.
The format has now been officially announced by ESL for the event: eight teams will play a single elimination, best-of-three bracket across the two days of the event.

The first two teams to attend the event have also been announced and they are:
Vincent "Happy" Schopenhauer's EnVyUs and Finn "karrigan" Andersen's TSM will therefore be the first two announced teams to attend IEM San Jose. The two teams are something of rivals following recent offline clashes, such as nV's tense 2-0 victory at DreamHack Open London.
The event will also play a key role in determining the attendance of teams for the final stop of the Intel Extreme Masters circuit, at the IEM World Championship in Katowice.
