Announcing ASUS ROG as the title sponsor for Assembly Winter 2017 CS:GO tournament and also revealing the broadcast talent for the English and Finnish streams for the event which takes place in Helsinki on February 3-4, 2017.
ASUS ROG has been a visible partner of Assembly for many years now and this event is no different as ASUS ROG will be the title sponsor of the Assembly Winter 2017 ASUS ROG CS:GO tournament! With this partnership the tournament will upgrade its monitors to 24" ROG Swift PG248Q Full HD gaming monitors which have been built FPS gaming in mind. After the event the monitors are on sale at Jimm’s at the price of €369.
English broadcast talent
Assembly will provide a high grade tournament broadcast which will follow the action in the Assembly Winter 2017 ASUS ROG CS:GO tournament. The commentators are Matthew "Sadokist" Trivett & Halvor "vENdetta" Gulestøl which have proved their talents in multiple CS:GO events around the globe.

Finnish broadcast talent
The Finnish broadcast is produced by the Finnish Broadcasting Company, Yle. The best way to follow the competition in Finnish is of course from the audience stands right in front of the tournament stage. Yle will broadcast all the matches live to their website Areena, but the final will also be broadcasted on the TV2 channel. Additionally, TV2 will show a re-run of the broadcast on Friday and Saturday nights.
The Finnish commentators are Teemu “wabbit” Hiilinen & Juha “aNgeldust” Kurppa. At the analysis desk we'll have our experts Joona “natu” Leppänen and Jenny “NapuliX” Kåla, and the studio host Samuel Nyman. On the stage the mic belongs to the stage host Esa “Snapple” Kaisjoki.

Update to teams
Unfortunately the Polish Sferis PRIDE has cancelled their participation to the event and instead opted to stabilize the team after a recent player change. They will be replaced by the French team Ninja Turtles whose captain Julien “Petitskel” Marcantoni managed to reach the semi-finals at the previous Assembly Winter in 2016.
