IEM Katowice Americas Minor Groups announced

The Minor circuit will be one of the few recent events to utilize two desks hosts, with America's very own Tres "stunna" Saranthus splitting duties with James Banks. Joining them as analysts on the desk will be Chad "SPUNJ" Burchill, Asia CS:GO expert Sudhen "Bleh" Wahengbam, Jacob "Pimp" Winneche, and Joona "natu" Leppänen.

The Canadian commentary duo of Conner "Scrawny" Girvan and Mohan "launders" Govindasamy will cast their first Minor together, with launders making his last appearance in the Minor circuit back in 2016 at the Americas Minor for ESL One Cologne. Hugo Byron and Harry "JustHarry" Russell will also pair up in the commentary booth, with Jason Kaplan — who's last appearance on a CS:GO broadcast was as a part of the ESL Pro League Season 1 Finals team — and Tom "Tombizz" Bissmire rounding out the list.
