As the Premiership gets set to launch on Saturday 17th August, BFBS Radio 2 has live coverage of the new season for Forces listeners overseas

BFBS Radio 2’s line-up kicks off with live commentary from BBC 5 LIVE of the Liverpool V Stoke match at 12.45pm.

There’ll be live updates from games starting at 3 o’clock, then from 5.30pm BFBS Radio 2 will broadcast talkSPORT’s coverage of the Swansea V Manchester United match; opening salvos of a stack of top-flight games available to our listeners across the Forces world.

Head of BFBS Radio 2, Mario Chrisostomou, said: “Coverage of live sport is hugely important to our audience and it doesn’t come any bigger than the Premiership. Whether listeners in Canada are waking up just in time for kick-off, or staying up late for the evening match in Afghanistan – or anywhere in between in the Forces world – it’s great to have the most followed football league back!”

Throughout the season BFBS Radio 2 listeners can also look forward to more sports favourites such as ‘6-0-6’ and Fighting Talk.

BFBS Radio 2 is available via FM and on TV Digiboxes boxes, overseas across the Forces world.
