Special 1 TV Releases a Video Teaser; Is The Show Coming Back?! [VIDEO]

UPDATED: Special 1 TV is back.

The insanely popular TV/web show with a cast of characters including Sven, The Special One, Sir Alex, Wayne Rooney and others is returning. Special 1 TV released a special episode this morning to tease their fans.

With Jose Mourinho dropping major hints that he’s going to move from Real Madrid back to the Premier League, it’s perfect timing for Special 1 TV to make a return.

Special 1 TV has a deal in place with Betfair to provide four episodes this month. And if there’s enough demand and interest in this sneak-peek episode, then hopefully the chaps at Betfair will decide to continue sponsoring the show, so we all can watch it week after week. If you want Special 1 TV to keep on going, it wouldn’t hurt to send Betfair a tweet and tell them you love Special 1 TV.

Here’s the video teaser below. I don’t know about you, but it feels like Christmas morning!

    This could be the best news ever. In my opinion it trumps NBC getting the EPL rights.

    It would be awesome to have Special One TV back on the air. Get it done guys!

    Do you know which soccer channels will be showing which European leagues for the upcoming 2013-2014 season? Interested in knowing what ESPN is going to do.

    • The Gaffer says:

      Frank, ESPN will be saying bye-bye to EPL broadcasts in a couple of weeks. All of the details are at

      Where have you been laddie? ;)

      • Frank says:

        I’m aware of NBC’s EPL coverage. I was thinking more about what soccer will ESPN be covering now that NBC has the EPL? Will beIn still cover La Liga and Serie A?

        A breakdown of where on US TV each of the major European leagues will feature would be useful to soccer fans. Maybe you could write a piece on this subject.

        • The Gaffer says:

          ESPN will have the Mexican national team, US men’s national team, Confederations Cup and 2014 World Cup.

          Serie A and La Liga remain on beIN SPORT for the next few years.

          The Gaffer

          • San Franciscan says:

            Just wondering Gaffer how was the schedule of the 2010 World Cup on ESPN, just wondering how it will be next year.

            • The Gaffer says:

              They showed every single game and had a ton of pre- and post-match programming. Nothing has been announced for next year yet.
