FOX SPORTS PACKS MORE ACTION INTO SINGLEHEADER SUNDAYS

 

Ground Breaking Series BEING: LIVERPOOL Premieres Sunday, Sept. 16

Barclays Premier League & UFC’s Road to the Octagon Heat Up Fall NFL Schedule

 

New York, NY – FOX Sports brings fans an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at soccer’s most iconic football club, the best matches in Barclays Premiere League Soccer and the most intense, in-depth preview of UFC on FOX 5 to complement singleheader NFL action on Sundays this fall.

 

It all begins this Sunday, Sept. 16 with the premiere of BEING: LIVERPOOL, a ground-breaking profile of the Liverpool Football Club. The documentary marks the first time that cameras have been allowed inside a Barclays Premier League locker room, with FOX Sports onsite during the club’s formative transition under new manager Brendan Rodgers. The six-episode series is narrated by Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe winner Clive Owen.

 

BEING: LIVERPOOL airs either preceding (3:00 PM ET) or following (4:30 PM ET) local NFL on FOX singleheader coverage, with two repeats that night on FOX Soccer. Future episodes of BEING: LIVERPOOL debut in prime time on FOX Soccer and MundoFOX beginning Sunday, Sept. 23 (9:00 PM ET/PT).

 

FOX Sports' regular season Barclays Premier League (BPL) coverage kicks-off Sunday, Sept.23 with a tape-delay match featuring Liverpool vs. Manchester United.  It is the first of three marquis matches showcasing some of the world’s most storied soccer clubs. In addition to the Sept. 23 match, FOX Sports airs BPL contests on Sunday, Oct. 7 when Newcastle takes on Manchester United (tape-delay) and Sunday, Nov. 4 when Liverpool and Newcastle face-off (tape-delay).  All three tape-delay games, which air either from 2:00-4:00 PM ET or 4:30-6:30 PM ET, will have aired live earlier in the day on FOX Soccer.

 

On Sunday, Dec 2, in anticipation of the UFC's next live prime time main event on FOX the following weekend, FOX Sports offers UFC’s ROAD TO THE OCTAGON, a powerful one-hour, behind-the-scenes look at the fighters’ preparation leading up to the Saturday, Dec. 8 bouts.

 

NFL game assignments determining what time these specials air regionally are announced two weeks prior to game day.

    Now that I have NFL RedZone on Cablevision in New Jersey you think I’m going to be watching local TV coverage of my beloved NY Giants let alone soccer or anything else they put on after football?

    BFL RedZone is 7 1/2 hours of NON-STOP football action with ZERO commercials!!! It brings a tear to my eye.
