Matt Okine fronts Thursday FC for SBS 2

sbsfoNext  month SBS 2 is launching a new live sports entertainment show, Thursday FC, as part of its A-League coverage.

Broadcast in front of a live studio audience, it will be hosted by comedian Matt Okine, joined by SBS Football Presenters Lucy Zelic and David Zdrilic.

The show will comprise  entertainment, interviews, live performances, a look at upcoming games plus special guests from football, music and film with music provided by house band, Cartoon.

Head of Sport Ken Shipp said: “Thursday FC is unlike anything SBS has ever done before and a first for football in Australia. Targeted towards A-League fans as well as a broader audience demographic, the program will capture the human and entertaining side of the game and build anticipation for the live Hyundai A-League matches on SBS 2 on Friday nights.”

Premieres live on Thursday 10 October at 8:30pm on SBS 2
A-League game Sydney FC and Newcastle Jets on Friday 11 October at 7:00pm on SBS 2.


  1. Well done to SBS for having this new show, along with the Friday night A-League matches, on SBS2. Without the afl/nrl footy shows and Friday night games (aka – the ”rival codes”) to compete against, I hope that sbs2 will have a spike in ratings,
