Children to front a Sky Sports Premier League broadcast for the first time

Friday 23 December 2022

Brentford V Liverpool will be available to all Sky TV subscribers on Sky Showcase

For the first time ever, Sky Sports is inviting four young football fans to step in front of the cameras and give viewers at home a special presentation of Premier League fixture Brentford FC v Liverpool FC on 2 January 2023.

Titled Premier League Juniors, the broadcast will offer viewers an alternative way to enjoy the fixture available exclusively on Sky Sports and NOW. Sky Sports presenter Kelly Cates will be joined by two junior fans of both Clubs who will have a go at a variety of roles during the broadcast including presenting, interviewing managers and players, as well as commentating.

The four children joining Sky Sports - either from Hounslow schools or schools who work with the Liverpool FC Foundation - are Naveed, Rishi, Delilah and Aman.

The younger generation are the future of Sky Sports and Premier League Juniors will put them front and centre of our coverage. We hope to inspire kids up and down the country. Who knows, we might discover the next Gary Neville or Kelly Cates.

Director of Football

Premier League Juniors, exclusively live on Sky Showcase - available in all Sky homes - as well as Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Mix, starts at 5pm on 2 January 2023.

Fans will be able to watch the match fronted by Sky Sports regulars including Gary Neville, Micah Richards, Jamie Carragher and David Jones, on Sky Sports Main Event.
