Airdate: English Premier League 2018

SBS screens a weekly EPL match on Saturday nights from August.

English Premier League games return to SBS next month – just weeks after the FIFA World Cup.

Lucy Zelić hosts one match per week with SBS Chief Football Analyst Craig Foster and special guests.

SBS Director of Sport, Ken Shipp, said: “SBS is thrilled to continue bringing the best international football live to all Australians for free. We have a very proud 30-year history of broadcasting the world game to the country and we are confident football fans will continue to turn to SBS for the trusted analysis and coverage we are known for.

“The Premier League is one of the most highly regarded sporting leagues in the world, and one which speaks to SBS’s charter through its representation of the beautiful game’s ability to unite diverse communities both here in Australia and around the globe, as we have seen throughout the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia.”

The first two months of competition on SBS will feature some of the stars of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia playing for their clubs, including England’s Harry Kane for Tottenham Hotspurs, Belgium’s Romelu Lukaku and France’s Paul Pogba for Manchester United, Belgium’s Kevin De Bruyne for cross-town rivals Manchester City, and Egypt’s Mohammed Salah for Liverpool.

Responding to audiences’ desire to watch what they want, where and when they want, SBS will also live stream every SBS Premier League match free through The World Game app.

In addition, SBS’s weekly global football highlights program The World Game hosted by Lucy Zelić, will return to 11pm, Monday nights from August 13 on SBS and online via The World Game website.
