Match of the Day 2 promoted to BBC1

Next season the BBC’s Match of the Day 2 is to be switched to BBC1 because of the increased number of Premier League games played on a Sunday.

Match of the Day 2 will now air on BBC1 at 10.25pm on a Sunday. The flagship Match of the Day programme will continue to be broadcast in its regular Saturday evening slot on BBC1.

Danny Cohen, the controller of BBC1, said: “As a huge fan of Match Of The Day I’m thrilled that MOTD2 is moving to a regular home on BBC1. The audience response to the BBC’s coverage of Euro 2012 has been fantastic, meaning that this is the perfect moment to make this move.”
