Tomorrow at 6 pm GMT the finals of IEM Katowice 2024 will commence. A gruelling best-of-five which will crown new kings of the Spodek Arena in Poland. If watching this legendary final alongside other UK community members and streamers peaks your interest, then you are in luck. Starting from 3:30 pm onwards Esports News UK are hosting the UK Esports Spring Party in Canary Wharf.
There will be 100 tickets which will include a token for a free beer, soft drink or applicable cocktail, plus a selection of free pizzas, nachos and ice cream, on a first come first served basis.

There will be several notable UK streams such as Westie, Stodeh, Tactical Brit and Fozzii in attendance who will be hosting ticket giveaways to their followers too.
This is not the first time that Esports News UK has hosted a watch party. They did one for the League of Legends World Championship finals at the end of last year. Now for the first time, they will be hosting a Counter-Strike one.
IEM Katowice has turned into the Danil “donk” Kryshkovets show. After only turning 17 days ago, averaging a 1.62 HLTV rating in his debut S-tier event, is there anyone who can stop Spirit and their team’s debut? The first challenger will be Falcons later today. The other semi-final sees FaZe looking to reclaim the Katowice title after they won in 2022. They have already eliminated G2, and will look to do the same versus MOUZ. For added spice, FaZe signed MOUZ’s David “frozen” Čerňanský in the winter break, alongside Robin “ropz” Kool and Finn “karrigan” Andersen who also represented the German organisation for a combined six years.
The UK Esports Spring Party will take place at Platform, Canary Wharf, 1 Crossrail Place, Unit CR40, London, E14 5AR, in the new Crossrail building.
The tube station closest to the venue is Canary Wharf Underground Station, which is on the DLR and Elizabeth line. These close at around midnight.
There is a London Marriott Hotel nearby for people who want to stay the night, as well as a Premier Inn, Point A London, Lansbury Heritage and Ibis London Docklands in the area.
