A star-studded list featuring 21 names will bring you the action over the course of two weeks in Cologne.
As the closing event of the season approaches, ESL has announced the full lineup of on-air talent who will be in charge of guiding you through IEM Cologne on the official English broadcast.
Featuring a whopping 21 people, the talent list boasts many staple names of the industry, but also a couple of special guests in Eefje "sjokz" Depoortere, who had just had her CS:GO Major debut in Antwerp last month and who will return to fulfill the role of the analyst desk host along with Tres "stunna" Saranthus, and a newcomer to tier-one events in Jasmine "Veracity" Kanuga hosting the secondary stream desk.
Joining them on the desk will be Mathieu "Maniac" Quiquerez, Janko "YNk" Paunović, Alex "Mauisnake" Ellenberg, and Sudhen "Bleh" Wahengbam, while five well-known duos will commentate on matches in the dual-stream setup.
Freya "Freya" Spiers, O. J. Borg, James "BanKs" Banks, and Pala "Mantrousse" Gilroy Sen will also not miss the final event of the season as sideline reporters and helping host the LANXESS Arena crowd.
