ESL One Cologne 2020 on-air talent announced
ESL has revealed the broadcast lineup for the upcoming Cologne event, which has been divided into four regions.
ESL One Cologne will be held online across four regional divisions — Europe, North America, Asia and Oceania — with a combined $500,000 prize pool. The tournaments will run from August 18-30 and feature the highest value of ESL Pro Tour points.
In Europe and North America, the broadcast talent will split their attention between the regions in two casting trios. Lauren "Pansy" Scott, Alex "Machine" Richardson and Chad "SPUNJ" Burchill are the first trio who will talk the viewers through the action, with Harry "JustHarry" Russell, Frankie "Frankie" Ward and Hugo "Hugo" Byron also lending their voices to the matches.
The on-air team for Asia and Oceania is headlined by Jordan "Elfishguy" Mays, who has worked at several Big Events as a commentator, including the ESL Pro League Season 7 Finals and the 2018 and 2019 IEM Sydney events, and is the host of the Geographically Challenged podcast, which covers Asian Counter-Strike.
