This development marks the first time in Counter-Strike history that event visitors will receive item drops through an official event app. In order to be eligible, visitors must "check-in" at the venue once a day with geo-locations enabled on their devices. "When we create live events, we want to give our fans the best experience they can get," said Ulrich Schulze, Managing Director of Pro Gaming at ESL. "With the introduction of the app, all of them now have the same chance to receive item drops as those watching online, and that is on top of the incredible atmosphere at the venue."

"The ESL Katowice event app is the first in a row of mobile applications that we have planned for the company," said John Minah, Vice President Online & Mobile at ESL. "We're looking to ensure that event apps become a staple for major ESL competitions and aim to continually add to the functionality and versatility of the applications."

Competition for both Intel Extreme Masters and ESL One will be held in the Spodek Arena and adjoining Exhibition Hall from March 12-15 in Katowice, Poland. Featuring world class matches between the world's best StarCraft II, League of Legends, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and HearthstoneĀ® players, the app will provide an overview for all of the action.
