Mission accomplished! The $400,000 prize pool for IEM Katowice 2019 is now fully funded thanks to the SC2 community and the success of the War Chest: Katowice 2019 Complete Bundle.

By purchasing the War Chest, players were able to unlock more than 70 new items while playing Versus and Co-op matches or watching eligible Twitch streams. A sizeable 25% of the cost was used to add a further $150,000 to the already secure $250,000 IEM Katowice 2019 SC2 prize pool.

Total: $400,000*

1st: $150,000
2nd: $65,000
3-4th: $25,000
5-8th: $10,000
9-12th: $5,000
13-16th: $3,000
17-20th: $2,500
21-24th: $2,000
25-28th: $1,550
29-36th: $1,250
37-44th: $900
45-60th: $600
(+$200 per win in the Ro24)

We look forward to repaying the community’s enthusiasm by delivering yet another epic tournament with the world’s best players in Poland between February 25 and March 3. The War Chest: Katowice 2019 will remain available for purchase and further sales will go to further fund SC2 esports.
