Football for the Asian Network

BBC Asian Network’s DJ Nihal starts the new football season with a bang this Saturday, introducing a new Desi flavour to the Premiership and promising big names like you’ve never heard them before.

Nihal, on-air partner of Bobby Friction on BBC Radio 1, will bring a constant stream of footy news, star interviews, goal alerts and general mayhem to the Asian Network airwaves every Saturday throughout the season from 3.00 to 5.00pm in Kickin’ Off with Nihal.

The Essex geezer who went to the same school as his Tottenham hero Glenn Hoddle will bring his earthy charm to a football show like no other. In the first week Nihal offers a chance to win the Premiership trophy in your house, club, workplace or school. Yes, the real one that Chelsea won last season.

The show also features:

The Kickin’ Line – where listeners vent their spleen about the Football issues of the day;

Informer – Premiership Players dish the dirt on their teammates. Who has the worst dress sense? Who is the most bling? Who don’t you want to be stuck in a lift with?

The Desi Doctor – who offers tips, style advice and generally interferes with the cream of Premiership talent.

And Kickin’ Off will give listeners a chance to win Premiership tickets each week.

Building on the close relationship between football and music, Nihal will introduce exclusive plays of new tracks to the Premiership’s finest. He said: “We’re going to play them Asian tracks and see which ones they rate and which ones they don’t like as much! Music is a great in with players – they love to club, they love to go out and dance and some of them are very, very knowledgeable about music.”
