TNT Sports kicks off its inaugural season of Premier League coverage on August 12th at the Emirates Stadium with last season’s runners-up, Arsenal, hosting Nottingham Forest.
Matchday coverage starts at 11am on TNT Sports 1, live from the ground, with a new Early Kick-Off show hosted by Jules Breach with Joe Cole and one of TNT Sports’ newest recruits, Ally McCoist. The show will now run directly into the hour-long build-up to the match to keep fans connected to all the updates from the ground.
Breach will hand over to Lynsey Hipgrave for the pre-game build-up where she will be joined by Rio Ferdinand and Cole to preview the match. The build-up will include a renewed focus on the latest news and fan views directly from the ground as part of a broader ambition to make the most of being live from the ground and close to the players, supporters and key narratives from in and around the match.
Pre-match coverage for Arsneal vs Nottingham Forest will also include an exclusive interview with Ferdinand and Arsenal’s record summer signing, Declan Rice.
Live coverage of the match starts at 12:30pm, with the commentary team led by Darren Fletcher alongside McCoist on co-comms and Breach reporting from the sideline. TNT Sports’ coverage of the match will be capped by post-game analysis from Hipgrave, Ferdinand, Cole and McCoist.
