HOSTS REVEALED FOR NEW ITV EFL HIGHLIGHTS SHOW

ITV have revealed the presenting line-up for their new EFL highlights programme.

Hugh Woozencroft and Jules Breach will front the show which makes its debut on Saturday, July 30.

Woozencroft presents on Talksport and has previously worked for BBC Sport. Breach anchors England matches on Channel 4. Before that she was best known for her work on BT Sport Score.

ITV have agreed a two-season deal for the highlights rights, taking over from Quest TV.

They are promising to show them at 9pm on ITV 4 every Saturday (the same slot used by Quest) with repeats on the main ITV channel later that night and on Sunday mornings.

The rights also cover the Carabao Cup and Papa John’s Trophy.

ITV say each show will feature every goal from every EFL match and detailed analysis from a panel of expert pundits, although none of those have yet been announced.

While Quest’s coverage has been praised, ITV’s bigger reach is likely to give the EFL competitions a much larger audience.

Some fans had hoped Colin Murray, who fronted Quest’s coverage, would host ITV’s offering but it was widely expected ITV wanted their own presenters.

On Twitter, Woozencroft praised Murray and Quest’s coverage, but revealed the same production team would be working on the new ITV show.

Sky Sports will continues to provide live match coverage – all confirmed live EFL TV games are listed HERE

PREMIER LEAGUE NEW SEASON TV DETAILS REVEALED

The Premier League has revealed the new season fixture list – and with it which games will be shown on live TV for the first weekend.

The 2022-23 season will see the same TV arrangements as the previous year as part of a rolled over new three-year deal with Sky, BT and Amazon – see HERE.

Premier League officials have also revealed the provisional dates it hopes to announce which games have been selected for live TV broadcast.

However, due to the complicated nature of the picking system for broadcasters, policing arrangements and games being moved to accommodate cup competitions, the league has struggled to stick to the timetable in the past.

Sky will again show 128 live games and has the first pick of all the regular weekend rounds, typically screening up to five matches a weekend across Friday Night Football, Saturday Night Football, Super Sunday and Monday Night Football. BT again has the Saturday lunchtime matches including a number of second pick matches.

Amazon Prime Video has two complete rounds of games (20 matches in all) – an October midweek round and the Boxing Day which are likely to be staggered across different times slots and dates as in previous seasons.

Free-to-air highlights will again be shown thrown the BBC’s Match of the Day.
