Chelsea coverage on smooth fm

London’s newest radio station 102.2 Smooth FM has agreed a deal with Chelsea FC to carry full commentary rights for the next three seasons beginning August 2005.

It is the first time that all of Chelsea?s games will be broadcast in the capital on FM.

102.2 Smooth FM will follow every single game, home and away, involving the Barclay?s Premier League winners, providing uninterrupted coverage across London. Fans will be able to tune in to Chelsea FC?s every kick of the ball in the FA Cup, Carling Cup and Champions League ties, as well as their Barclay?s Premier League games.

John Myers, GMG Radio’s Chief Executive said:

?This is an important strand of our future programming at 102.2 Smooth FM. We are delighted to provide Chelsea football fans with coverage of all their games ? and on the FM frequency. Clearly, this will enhance our offering to listeners and advertisers and we look forward to providing exciting coverage for the new season and beyond?

Peter Kenyon, Chief Executive of Chelsea FC said:

?Our club is going through an exciting phase and it?s important to us that our fans can listen to each and every game on FM across the Capital. For the first time we are able to point people to one outlet that is guaranteed to carry coverage of the Blues.?

102.2 Smooth FM launched across London in June this year providing a mix of music from artists such as Lemar, Stevie Wonder, Joss Stone, Michael Buble and Alicia Keys.

102.2 Smooth FM is owned by Guardian Media Group Radio and is part of a group of five regional stations broadcasting across Scotland, Wales, Yorkshire, the North West and London.
