NBC Sports today announced that they’ll be taking their broadcast crew to England for the third season in a row to allow their talent to broadcast live from three games across England.
Talent including Rebecca Lowe, Kyle Martino, Robbie Earle and Robbie Mustoe will make the trek to England to bring viewers closer to the action both inside and outside of the cathedrals of soccer in England. On this particular trip, NBC Sports will visit White Hart Lane, Old Trafford and Riverside Stadium for three crunch matches during one of the most important parts of the season — the final stretch.
The NBC Sports crew will begin their broadcasts with live coverage from the Saturday, April 15 game between Tottenham Hotspur and Bournemouth. It’ll be the third from last league that Spurs will ever play at White Hart Lane, so the broadcast will be a chance for many viewers to get a chance to see the inner workings of one of the most iconic older stadiums in English soccer.
Live coverage from White Hart Lane begins at 6:30am ET and continues until 3pm. It’ll feature a on-site studio, pitch-side desk and on-site commentary.
The second broadcast of NBC Sports’ trip to England will feature the Sunday, April 16 broadcast of Manchester United against Chelsea. Live coverage will begin at 7:30am ET and will finish at 2pm ET. The crew at Old Trafford will have an on-site studio, pitch-side desk and on-site commentary.
Last but not least, the NBC Sports Premier League crew will finish up their visit to England with live coverage from Middlesbrough’s Riverside Stadium on Monday, April 17 from 2pm to 6pm ET. They’ll be there for the Middlesbrough versus Arsenal live. During that broadcast, NBC Sports will feature an on-site studio, pitch-side desk and on-site commentary.
Last year, NBC Sports went to Stamford Bridge (for Chelsea vs. Manchester City), King Power Stadium (for Leicester vs. West Ham), and Britannia Stadium (for Stoke vs. Spurs). In 2015, the talent went to Old Trafford for the Manchester Derby, Anfield for Liverpool-Newcastle and Turf Moor for Burnley against Arsenal.
