About[edit]

The Intel® Extreme Masters returns to North America in November 2015 for the second edition of the largest ever ESL event in the US. The SAP Center in San Jose will once again see the greatest players in the world face off in front of a roaring crowd of thousands of fans.

The event will also be the eighth Intel® Extreme Masters to be held in the United States of America since the tournament series’ start in 2006. Around US$500,000 in prize money has been awarded in the United States of America alone thanks to the Intel® Extreme Masters, and this is set to increase even further with this upcoming San Jose stop.
