talkSPORT promises ‘biggest ever’ season of EFL coverage

talkSPORT is launching what it calls its “biggest ever” season of coverage for the English Football League.

It gets underway this Friday at 8pm, when Huddersfield faces Burnley in the Championship.

The network has carried extensive coverage of the EFL since a deal was struck with the Wireless Group in 2017.

talkSPORT says it will be broadcasting more than 340 hours of content this season, including more than 100 EFL games covering all 72 teams across the year.

The twice-weekly EFL Show on talkSPORT2 is also set to continue, with coverage of Championship, League 1 and League 2 fixtures.

The opening weekend’s coverage will feature commentary and analysis from Adrian Durham, Trevor Sinclair, Dan Windle, Micky Gray, Lucy Ward, Courtney Sweetman-Kirk, Perry Groves, Jim Proudfoot, David Connolly, Adam Bridge and Mark Wilson.

talkSPORT’s commentary lineup also includes Chris Iwelumo, Sam Parkin, Neil Redfearn, Adrian Clarke, Dean Holden, Ian Holloway, Jed Wallace, David Preece, Shaun Derry, Jamie Mackie and Jamie Cureton.

Lee Clayton, the Head of talkSPORT, says: “talkSPORT is the home of football and this season listeners can count on us to provide the best and most extensive coverage of the EFL.

Broadcasting over 340 hours of content across our platforms, talkSPORT will be the top destination to enjoy coverage across the EFL competitions this season.”

The EFL’s CEO, Trevor Birch says: “With another exciting season set to kick-off later this week, we are delighted that talkSPORT will be providing live, exclusive radio commentary at more than 100 EFL league games as well coverage of other key fixtures across all our competitions.

“talkSPORT’s coverage and multi-platform content approach continues to bring EFL fans even closer to the action alongside showcasing the League to as broad an audience as is possible.”
