Frankie Ward returns to esports event hosting at PGL Major, Sjokz also joins broadcast line-up in favor of MSI

British esports host and personality Frankie Ward is returning to the live event stage at the CSGO PGL Major in Antwerp next month.

She’s been on maternity leave since the latter part of 2021 and said on Twitter that she’s really excited to be back working at a live esports event as a stage host.

Frankie also opened up about the challenges of being away from work on maternity leave, and how some people have responded to this.

“I’m really excited to be in Belgium next month,” Frankie said on Twitter. “The line-up is amazing, but of course there are others who would be incredible to share it with. Something that feels unique to esports is the celebration of when people aren’t included and that seems unnecessary.

“Even not being part of events due to birthing an actual human being has been difficult – most people who work in esports live and breathe it, so to have that part of you cut off is really difficult, and to then have people happy you aren ‘t can be even harder.

“Think before you tweet is simple advice and something I don’t always follow, so maybe it would be more precise to say, ‘think before you tweet about someone else’.”

Frankie joins a host of other top-tier esports talent at the Antwerp 2022 Major, which kicks off on May 9th.

Other British talent includes interviewer James Banks, desk host Freya (who was part of the 2021 PGL Major), casters Machine, JustHarry, Hugo Byron and Vince (who said earlier this year he would no longer be working with ESL following the Saudi deal) , as well as observers Jak3y, ItsRandall, and Zarx.

Notably, Belgian host Sjokz is also on board at the CSGO event, in favor of League of Legends’ Mid-Season Invitational (MSI) which also takes place in May, in South Korea.

Sjokz commented:

Earlier this month, Sjokz returned to CSGO to host the PGL European RMR with James Banks.

Last year, Frankie won a Women in Games Award, worked on GamesMaster and received criticism at the Dota 2 International, with personalities like Moxxi and Richard Lewis sticking up for her.
