ESL announce 34-member IEM Fall broadcast team
The announcement for the IEM Fall EU, CIS and NA talent was made today, with twelve people tasked with bringing the action to life on the A stream. The same talent (bar one change) will cover both CIS and NA, as those events feature less teams and as such do not run for as long as the EU event.
The EU edition of the tournament takes place from September 29-October 10 and sees stunna take up host duties, whilst Janko "YNk" Paunović and Adam "Dinko" Hawthorne provide desk analysis. Just one duo, SPUNJ and Alex "Machine" Richardson, will handle the casting for the A stream.
Pala "Mantrousse" Gilroy Sen features as the sole side line reporter, due to EU being the only event on LAN.
The CIS and NA events, taking place September 29-October 3 and October 5-10 respectively, will feature Mike "DarfMike" Winnick as host, with Alex "Hawka" Hawkins providing analysis across both regions.
Further analysis for the CIS event is provided by Jack "Wolfy" Saunders, whilst Ryan "Laz" Lazauskas will swap in for NA. ESL regulars Harry "JustHarry" Russell and Hugo Byron will be on A stream commentary for both NA and CIS.
For the SA and Asia events, taking place September 29-October 3 and October 5-10 respectively, Dustin "dusT" Mouret announced via Twitter that he and Vince "Vince" Hill will handle casting duties on the A stream.
Jordan "ElfishGuy" Mays and Mitchell "pili" Pilipowski will be providing further commentary for the Asia A stream, as well as manning the A stream for the OCE event, which runs September 29-October 3.
