Englishman Ian Crocker appears regularly as a commentator for Sky Sports and via the TWI/IMG world feed for Premier League matches aired around the world, as well as UEFA Champions League games on Sky Sports.

Darke, one of the fan favorites in America, began working for ESPN in 2010. The Englishman also started commentating for BT Sport (sometimes simulcast on the NBC Sports Network) during the 2013-14 Premier League season. Darke’s smooth way with words and mellifluous voice make him one of the best announcers in any sport.
JP is a veteran US soccer commentator, who has announced so many legendary USMNT games including the 1-0 victory by USA against Trinidad and Tobago that sent the US team to the 1990 World Cup, as well as the 1999 World Cup Final when the USWNT beat China on penalty kicks to become world champions. Nowadays, Dellacamera can be found on FOX Sports.

Englishman Ross Dyer was a mainstay on the beIN SPORTS network where he was commentating Championship playoff finals, international friendlies, League Cup games and much more alongside co-commentator (and fellow Brit) Ian Joy. However, this season, he’s taken on a role with FOX Sports and ESPN. One of his responsibilities at FOX will be hosting FOX Soccer Plus’ MultiMatch 90 service for UEFA Champions League games.
Hawthorne’s name is synonymous with mid-week UEFA Champions League coverage. The ITV commentator can often be heard on US airwaves when FOX Sports uses the UK feed instead of the world feed.
While Johnson isn’t the most beloved soccer commentator around, no one can take away his enthusiasm in the booth. The Detroit native has spent the majority of his sports casting career working basketball and (American) football games, and is fairly popular in announcing these sports. Although he still does basketball and football games for FOX Sports, the network has tried its best to ease Johnson into the soccer world. With Johnson somewhat unsuccessfully working UEFA Champions League matches for the last 18 months (although working with Eric Wynalda doesn’t help), it was no surprise when he announced he was quitting as FOX’s lead commentator in September 2014 to focus on college football and college basketball instead. However, FOX Sports says he may return in a cameo role to announce more soccer games in the future.
