IEM Katowice 2021 broadcast team includes GeT_RiGhT, kassad, and YNk

ESL has revealed the broadcast talent lineup for the upcoming IEM Katowice 2021 event. While made up of names you’re used to seeing on ESL broadcasts, there’s a few surprises thrown in.

Aleksandar “⁠kassad⁠” Trifunović and Christopher “⁠GeT_RiGhT⁠” Alesund will be jumping into the fray as analysts for the event alongside Janko “⁠YNk⁠” Paunović who continues his return to analyst work following his departure from FaZe Clan where he served as head coach. They will be guided through the show by Tres “stunna” Saranthus who will be acting as host of the show. Frankie Ward will be bringing fans live interviews with the players, giving an inside look at the teams.

In terms of the action itself, two duos will be on the main broadcast made up of Chad “⁠SPUNJ⁠” Burchill, Alex “⁠Machine⁠” Richardson, Harry “JustHarry” Russell, and Hugo Byron.

On the secondary stream ESL will have Mike “⁠DarfMike⁠” Winnick, Dean Brown, Josh “Dweg” Nathan, and Jamie “TheEternalJay” Martin.
