IEM Sydney on-air team revealed

ESL has revealed the talent crew for the English language broadcast for the upcoming IEM event in Sydney.

Running from April 30 through to May 5, the Australian event will feature 16 top teams, who will be duking it out for their share of a $250,000 prize pool, with the playoffs being held in front of a live audience at the Qudos Bank Arena.

Tres "stunna" Saranthus will be hosting the show from the desk, where he will be joined by three analysts, including Iain "SnypeR" Turner, who makes his third appearance in an IEM Sydney talent team. Two casting pairs will be bringing the action live throughout the six days of the tournament, which will begin with the group stage at the ESL studios.

HenryG and Sadokist will be covering the action in Sydney

Below you can find the complete on-air team for the event:

Spunj on the rng matches for star series is so biased thats its almost funny
2019-04-05 12:04
When renegades win or lose intense close rounds, spunJ's inner aussie comes out with " ohhhhhhhh noooooooo,. Oooooooooooo, aaaaaaaaaawwwwwww"

2019-04-05 12:50
The bias is hardly the problem with these types of guys. Last years they were just complete trash in every other way .
2019-04-05 13:12
Well, thats a problem too of course.
