The news comes after ESL UK’s previous full-time caster, Joe “Munchables” Fenny, announced his departure. Munchables has moved to the US where he will be working for ESP Gaming to work as talent and as a producer on their esports productions.
“We’re delighted to welcome Harry as a full-time member of ESL UK,” said Rob Black, UK COO at ESL. “Harry’s extensive experience in esports, both in the UK and internationally, makes him a perfect fit for our team.
“Harry brings a depth of knowledge for multiple esports titles that fans will love, and that will help give fans unique insights into teams play styles. It’s also a real privilege to have more homegrown talent join the ESL UK team.”
Harry added: “I’m really excited to join ESL UK. I first worked with the team on the ESL EU Halo Pro League, back in 2016. I was immediately impressed by the high quality of their tournaments and the overwhelming passion of the team. I can’t wait to get started!”
