Sports broadcaster ESPN is to debut a new schedule featuring around nine hours of live studio sport and commentary each Sunday and a new sports comedy chat show, Off The Ball.

The new look schedule will take effect from mid January and include a range of new pre and post match programming, analysis, highlights and discussion.

Jeroen Oerlemans, vice president and channel manager, ESPN – Europe, Middle East and Africa, said: “Weekends are at the heart of the weekly sports agenda, and are often when ESPN features more live sport and reaches the biggest number of UK fans.

“This new schedule allows us to bring viewers a great blend of quality live sport, studio discussion and analysis from an outstanding roster of presenters, pundits and guests throughout the afternoon and evening each Sunday.”
