NBC Sports to Debut ‘Premier League Club Selection Show’ August 8th

nbc epl press conference NBC Sports to Debut Premier League Club Selection Show August 8th

In the build-up to the new Premier League season scheduled to kick off on Saturday, August 17 on NBC, NBC Sports Network will debut two new soccer shows in early August as well as featuring several classic Premier League matches to increase the excitement before opening day.

One of the shows has been mentioned before, which is Premier League Countdown, a preview of the 2013-14 season. But the other show is quite intriguing and hasn’t been publicized yet. It’s entitled ‘Premier League Club Selection Show.’

Presumably the 60-minute show will help sports fans, who are new to the Premier League, choose what club they’d like to support. It’s a novel idea, and while it’ll be entertaining for hardcore soccer fans, it could be a very resourceful show for new fans to the world’s most popular sports league.

In addition to ‘Premier League Club Selection Show,’ and ‘Premier League Countdown,’ NBC Sports will air plenty of other EPL coverage from August 1-13. That includes 7.5 hours of continuous Premier League soccer coverage on Saturday, August 10 plus five hours of continuous EPL coverage during prime-time on Monday, August 12.

Here’s the NBC Sports Network TV schedule for August 1-13 that features Premier League coverage:
