BLAST Premier Spring Showdown on-air team revealed

BLAST has announced the broadcast talent for the upcoming Spring Showdown tournaments in Europe and North America.

BLAST is retaining the majority of the on-air team that worked in the regular season, which was held in January in London, with the only change being that Mathieu "⁠Maniac⁠" Quiquerez replaces Chad "⁠SPUNJ⁠" Burchill as one of the two analysts.

For desk host Auguste "⁠Semmler⁠" Massonnat, analyst Duncan "⁠Thorin⁠" Shields, and casters Anders "⁠Anders⁠" Blume and Jason "⁠moses⁠" O'Toole, this will be a return to a tournament broadcast after the quartet was last seen working in Flashpoint.

Semmler returns to a BLAST tournament as desk host

The BLAST Spring Showdown will run from June 1-7 in two different regions because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The European tournament will feature ten teams and a $182,500 prize pool, while the American competition will have eight teams and $142,500 on offer.

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

United States Auguste "⁠Semmler⁠" Massonnat — Desk host

United Kingdom Duncan "⁠Thorin⁠" Shields — Analyst
Switzerland Mathieu "⁠Maniac⁠" Quiquerez — Analyst

Denmark Anders "⁠Anders⁠" Blume — Caster
United States Jason "⁠moses⁠" O'Toole — Caster
Canada Conner "⁠Scrawny⁠" Girvan — Caster
Canada Mohan "⁠launders⁠" Govindasamy — Caster

United Kingdom James "⁠BanKs⁠" Banks — Interviewer
