NRG invited to IEM Sydney

NRG have accepted an invitation to compete at IEM Sydney, ESL has announced.

The North American side, who are currently ranked 11th in the world, bring the team count to nine, joining a list that features five top 10 sides in Liquid, FaZe, MIBR, Renegades and NiP.

NRG will be looking to make their mark in Sydney after struggling for form in the Australian city in 2018, when they went out 9th-12th after losing to Astralis and G2.

IEM Sydney will run from April 30 through to May 5, with the playoffs being held at the Qudos Arena, where the winner of the grand prize of $100,000 will be determined in a best-of-five final.
