StarSeries i-League S5 on-air team announced
The massive talent lineup for the upcoming StarSeries i-League S5 tournament has been announced, with popular broadcast figures set to be present in Kiev.
The $300,000 tournament will take place on May 28 - June 3, with 16 teams in attendance. The competition will start with a BO3 Swiss group stage, from which the eight best teams will advance to the BO3 playoffs.
Considering that StarLadder is running a packed schedule, with two BO3 matches going on at the same time for the majority of the event, a big talent lineup was needed. Guiding the viewers through the event will be a 15-man English broadcast team, with 14 additional people being hired to cover the Russian stream.
The star-studded English talent lineup features the likes of Matthew "Sadokist" Trivett, Henry "HenryG" Greer, Anders "Anders" Blume and Jason "moses" O'Toole, with former players such as Chad "SPUNJ" Burchill, Sean "seang@res" Gares and Janko "YNk" Paunović dominating the analyst desk.
