17 June 2015

Channel 5 can confirm details of their Football League highlights coverage this season following the fixtures announcement, with their new show Football League Tonight.

Football League Tonight will be shown in a live prime time 9.00pm slot on Channel 5 every Saturday of the season from 8 August.

The rights have been signed to the channel to broadcast a 90 minute weekly Football League highlights show for the next three years.

Each show will feature the top match footage from all three divisions of the Sky Bet Football League and will include every single goal from matches across the board.

In addition, Channel 5 will also broadcast three one-hour shows covering the end of season Sky Bet play-offs across all three divisions, plus eight one-hour highlights shows covering the action from each round of the Capital One Cup.

As well as every goal across the divisions, players and managers will be in the studio each week or taking part in the conversation via Skype and Facetime, along with an audience of fans who will also voice their opinion.

Executive Producer for Channel 5 Mark Sharman said: “Channel 5 are committed to bringing a quality, innovative football highlights show to Saturday night prime time TV.

“The 9.00pm slot finally gives the Sky Bet Football League the coverage and respect the fans deserve on terrestrial television.”
