Congratulations to Astralis, Champions of IEM’s 2019 CS:GO Major in Katowice!

Danish Astralis confirmed its place as the best team in history in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive after its second straight majors victory. In front of a packed Spodek Arena, in Polish Katowice, they met Ence in the grand final and won by 2–0 (16–11, 16–4).

The all-Finnish Ence became the big crowd favorite of the tournament. But the support was not enough. Astralis did not lose a single map under the majors, thus continuing its huge dominance.

The major is the third that Astralis has won, which means that together with Swedish Fnatic they have the record.

Almost one million people watched the broadcast, and then neither GOTV nor viewers in China are counted. Astralis player Emil “Magisk” Reif also became the best player of the tournament.
