BFBS takes talkSPORT games

The British Forces Broadcasting Service has started re-broadcasting Premier League games from talkSPORT to troops in more than 20 countries worldwide.

The deal, which commenced yesterday evening with Tottenham Hotspur against Arsenal, puts the high-profile matches on BFBS Radio 2.

talkSPORT currently broadcasts two exclusive Premier League matches every weekend, sponsored by Sky, and will do so for the next two seasons.

Moz Dee, talkSPORT Programme Director told "This tie-up with BFBS means that that the troops won't miss a minute of the action as the destination of the Premier League trophy is finally decided. It also gives us a platform to share other sports output with BFBS in the years to come."

BFBS Controller Nicky Ness: "Sport is central to the lives of the men and women of the armed forces, whether they’re serving on the front line in Afghanistan, one of our many bases across Europe or a far flung corner of the world, including Royal Naval ships at sea. We are delighted to partner with talkSPORT in order to keep our forces audiences connected with home and the things that are important to them. Initiatives like this make a tenable difference to morale and we can’t thank the talkSPORT team enough for their support.”
