The tournament operator ESL has presented the list of invited teams for IEM Dallas 2022. Among the "lucky" were many well-known teams, including NaVi, FaZe Clan and Astralis.

Invitations to IEM Dallas 2022 were issued according to two criteria: the presence of a partnership with the organizer, as well as the team's current rating in the ESL Pro Tour table.

Astralis, NAVI, FaZe Clan, G2 Esports, Ninjas in Pajamas and Team Vitality will act as partner teams at the event. In turn, given the position in the ESL Pro Tour table, the invites to IEM Dallas 2022 went to the teams ENCE, FURIA, Heroic and Players (Gambit).

Interestingly, earlier it was reported that players from Russia could not fly to the United States. In this regard, the fate of Players, as well as players from the NAVI and G2 Esports teams, remains unclear.

The remaining six places in the championship will be determined by the results of qualifications. Europe and North America have two slots each, while Oceania and South America have one slot each at IEM Dallas 2022.
