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.

The SadoG duo will be present at the event in Ukraine

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.

The full English talent lineup can be found below:

United Kingdom James Duffield - host
United States Tres "stunna" Saranthus - host
United Kingdom Pala "Mantrousse" Gilroy Sen - host

United Kingdom Duncan "Thorin" Shields - analyst
Serbia Janko"YNk" Paunovic - analyst
Australia Chad "SPUNJ" Burchill - analyst
United States Sean "seang@res" Gares - analyst

United Kingdom Henry "HenryG" Greer - caster

United States Jason "moses" O'Toole - caster
United Kingdom Harry "JustHarry" Russell - caster
Norway Halvor "Vendetta" Gulestol - caster
United Kingdom Hugo Byron - caster
Denmark Anders Blume - caster

On the Russian side of things, Antonina "Tonya" Predko and Roman "CaspeR" Lepokhin will be alternating as the desk hosts, while regular analysts such as Alexey "⁠xaoc⁠" Kucherov and Arseny "⁠ceh9⁠" Trynozhenko will be joined by Anatoliy "⁠liTTle⁠" Yashin, who recently parted ways with forZe.
