IEM Beijing hinted at in Intel Grand Slam video
An IEM event could be happening in Beijing this November according to an informational Intel Grand Slam video, which was aired on the DreamHackCS Twitch channel.
Ahead of the FURIA - Liquid semi-final at DreamHack Masters Dallas, an informational video about the Intel Grand Slam circuit was shown, with the focus being on the Astralis - Liquid rivalry. When the nine upcoming events were shown, one named "IEM Beijing - November" was listed.
The hinted event fits in between DreamHack Masters Malmö in October and the ESL Pro League Finals, which will happen at a yet-undisclosed location in December. IEM Katowice 2020 was the last event named on the list.
ESL's last event in China was IEM Shanghai, which was held in August of 2018 during the player break, and won by NRG over TYLOO in the finals. That event, however, was not part of the Intel Grand Slam circuit.
