BBC Championship Coverage


Recommended Posts

Today, the first 4 live games to be shown on the BBC have been announced.

* Saturday August 8 - West Bromwich Albion v Newcastle United, BBC1 at 5.30pm.

* Saturday September 26 - Ipswich Town v Newcastle United, 5.30pm (channel TBC).

* Saturday October 24 - Derby County v Queens Park Rangers, BBC2 at 5.30pm.

* Sunday November 1 - Cardiff City v Nottingham Forest, BBC1 at 2pm.

Good news. Though it might reduce the attendance, it is good to see the Rams on terrestrial TV again.

Newcastle United twice in four chosen games though? We're gonna have to get used to Newcastle's over-selected coverage.

Forest have a game on too.

Thats the one, moved onto doing the Olympics I think it was then Football Focus. When does the F1 season finish? if it doesnt overlap into the football season too much I would guess it would be him. Wouldn't of thought Lineker, Hanson and co. would be doing it.

I'm sure I read earlier in the year that BBC would be taking over the Football League highlights show, don't quote me on it tho.

Glad to hear that. I flippin hate 'The Championship' (not the League of course the ITV show). It shows about half an hour of one match, with ten seconds of Derby. He spends hours walking around some stadium making crap puns. Not to mention the constant ad breaks! :mad: :mad:


Well it's on BBC now, so all is well.
