Intel Extreme Masters (abbreviated as IEM) is the longest-running global pro gaming tour in the world. In 2006, when the Intel-sponsored European tournament saw room for expansion outside of Europe, especially in North American markets, Intel provided funds for a worldwide tournament, billing it as the Intel Extreme Masters. In 2007, when established, IEM established a format of many smaller qualifying events, leading up to a large final event that was held at CeBIT. Starting in 2008, the tournament was billed as being worldwide, boasting participants from Europe, North America, and Asia.

Throughout its 15 seasons, the competition features events across multiple continents for various games including Counter-Strike 1.6, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Warcraft III, World of Warcraft, Quake Live, DotA, StarCraft II, League of Legends, and more.

The Counter-Strike 1.6 tournament was considered one of the Counter-Strike Majors from 2008 to 2012.
