It’s almost time for the second ELEAGUE Street Fighter V Invitational! The esports tournament has announced its panel of analysts that will give us the play-by-play during the brackets. In addition, we’re welcoming a new host to the desk — but otherwise, expect lots of familiar FGC faces.

As usual, we’re going to see the unstoppable duo, Steve “Tasty Steve” Scott and Stephen “Sajam” Lyon, joined by Reepal “Rip” Parbhoo and Zhi “Zhieeep” Liang Chew. They compose the panel of experts. Michele Morrow is the new host. As for the interviewer who will keep us connected to the competitors, Malik Forté returns from last year’s ELEAGUE.

The action starts very soon, in a little over one week: the tournament begins Friday, June 1st, at 11:00 PM ET on TBS’s channel. However, live coverage will start on their Twitch channel that day at 3:00 PM.

However, there is also a preview show airing on TBS this Friday, May 25th, at 11:00 PM ET/PT. This segment will showcase all the ELEAGUE competitors “as well as catch fans up on what makes the FGC unique, along with its history.” There will also be a highlight of JB’s victory through The Challenger reality TV show.

Check out a sneak peek of the show below:
