FACEIT London Major Talent Revealed

The on-air talent for the FACEIT London Major was revealed Wednesday by FACEIT and will include 14 figures in total, from interviewers to analysts.

The ​Counter-Strike: Global Offensive event will be hosted by Alex "Machine" Richardson, with assistance on-stage from Pala Gilroy Sen and interviews by Freya Spiers. On commentary, viewers will see Daniel "ddk" Kapadia, James Bardolph, Anders Blume, Jason "Moses" O'Toole, Henry "HenryG" Greer and Matthew "Sadokist" Trivett.

The analyst desk will consist mostly of the usual suspects, as Chad "SPUNJ" Burchcill, Jacob "Pimp" Winneche and Sean "[email protected]" Gares will all be in attendance.

Also on the desk will be Björn "THREAT" Pers and Damian "daps" Steele, two far less common figures on the talent side of things. THREAT previously worked with FACEIT before his time with Ninjas in Pyjamas, but has been inactive since he left that team. While he makes his return, daps will make his debut as an analyst in the wake of his team, NRG, failing to qualify.

​Twenty four teams total will compete at the major, which is set to run a ​slightly different format than usual.
