TheMongolz secure visas for IEM Oakland
The winners of the South-East Asian qualifier for IEM Oakland 2017, TheMongolz, have secured U.S. visas that will allow them to participate in the event.
Enkhtaivan "Machinegun" Lkhagva and co. qualified for the upcoming Intel Extreme Masters event back in September, beating teams such as MVP PK and Chiefs along the way to claim the Asian spot at the event.
Almost a month later, TheMongolz have announced that their players have received visas for the United States, which means that they will actually be able to play at the event. The Mongolian team had issues with visas last year when they qualified for the MLG Colombus Major Qualifier, and had to skip the event due to that. In the end, Splyce came in as a last-second replacement and managed to earn a spot at the Major.
The last big international event for TheMongolz, who are currently ranked #106 in our rankings, was IEM Katowice 2016, while they finished 5-6th at the two last Asian Minors that were held.
Just to remind you, IEM Oakland 2017, will be held on November 16-19 and will feature a $300,000 prize pool, with the following teams in attendance:
