The PGL Krakow Major talent was announced Tuesday, and many familiar faces will be on hand to call the next Counter-Strike Major.
The hosts of the tournament will be fan favorites Scott “SirScoots” Smith and Paul “Redeye” Chaloner, who have been the hosts for a number of major and premier Counter Strike: Global offensive tournaments, and the team also includes Pala “Mantrousse” Gilroy Sen, who has experience as an interviewer and content creator. Scoots and ReDeYe both were on hand for the MLG Columbus Major last April, but neither participated at the ELEAGUE Major in January.
Three former professionals will be present as analysts in Joona “natu” Leppänen, Chad “SPUNJ” Burchill, and Robin “Fifflaren” Johansson. This will be the first Major as an analyst for SPUNJ. Janko “YNk” Paunović and Jason “Moses” O’Toole will also be on the desk.
The play-by-play casting will be performed by the three popular duos in Anders Blume and Auguste “Semmler”Massonnat, James Bardolph and Daniel “ddk” Kapadia and Matthew “Sadokist” Trivett and Henry “HenryG” Greer. DJ “Prius” Kuntz and Heather “sapphiRe” Garozzo will be the observers.
The Major will be without Richard Lewis and Duncan “Thorin” Shields, both of whom were on the desk for the ELEAGUE Major.
The PGL Major takes place from July 16-23 in Krakow, Poland.
