Intel will hold a CS:GO tournament at IEM Katowice featuring all-female CS:GO teams competing for a $30,000 USD prize pool.

Five invited teams and three qualified teams will face off at Intel Challenge Katowice 2016. Teams that want to be invited must fill out a form on ESL's website asking for an invite.

Last year, Bad Monkey Gaming walked home with the $15,000 grand prize. However, IEM Challenge 2015 only featured four teams, while this year's will see eight competing.

IEM Katowice runs from Mar. 4 to 6 in Katowice, Poland. The open qualifiers kick off on Jan. 24.
