IEM Katowice Major stickers released
Valve has released a new update for CS:GO that includes the stickers for the first Major of 2019, to be hosted by ESL from February 13 through to March 3.
The team and autograph stickers are now available for purchase in-game and from the Steam Community Market, where fans will also be able to obtain a viewer pass for the event, a novelty in the history of the Majors.
The Katowice 2019 Viewer Pass contains several items including an upgradable event coin, access to the Pick'Em Challenge, unlimited graffiti from all 24 teams during the event, Steam.tv chat team flair and exclusive access to souvenir packages.
Once the viewer pass is activated, fans will receive a bronze Katowice Event Coin, which can be upgraded up to diamond by completing challenges, watching the games, and playing the Pick'Em Challange. With each upgrade, fans will also redeem a souvenir package from the match of their choice.
The first round of predictions for the Major will need to be submitted before the Challengers Stage begins, on February 13. By correctly predicting which teams will be progressing, fans will complete challenges and make progress towards updating their event coin.
Half of the proceeds from the viewer pass and from the team and autograph stickers above will go to the players and organizations taking part in the IEM Katowice Major, which will be ESL's third Major hosted at the iconic Spodek Arena.
