EPL commentator assignments on NBC Sports, Gameweek 38
With one of the most exciting title races in history concluding this weekend, NBCUniversal presents a historic Championship Sunday, with all 10 matches presented live simultaneously across NBCUniversal platforms this Sunday, May 12 at 10 a.m. ET. For the first time since 2013-14, the winner of the Premier League will be decided on Championship Sunday.
No matter what happens on the final match day of the season, the drama will live at Anfield, where 2nd-place Liverpool, who have never won the Premier League, host Wolverhampton Wanderers on NBC and Universo at 10 a.m. ET. Meanwhile, on NBCSN and Telemundo at 10 a.m. ET, Pep Guardiola, Sergio Aguero and Manchester City visit Brighton & Hove Albion, aiming to become the first team to win back-to-back titles since Manchester United won three straight from 2006-07 to 2008-09.
Manchester City lead Liverpool by one point, with the final Championship Sunday match to play.
NBCUniversal’s Championship Sunday coverage kicks off on NBCSN this Sunday at 8 a.m. ET with a special two-hour Premier League Mornings. Rebecca Lowe hosts Premier League Mornings, Premier League Live, and Goal Zone, joined by former US Men’s National Team Midfielder Kyle Martino, former Jamaica National Team player Robbie Earle, and former Premier League footballer Robbie Mustoe.
NBC Sports’ lead Premier League play-by-play announcer Arlo White calls Liverpool v. Wolverhampton Wanderers on NBC and Universo, joined by analyst Graeme Le Saux. Clive Tyldesley calls Brighton & Hove Albion v. Manchester City on NBCSN and Telemundo, joined by analyst Lee Dixon. Lowe, Mustoe, Earle and Martino will return following the matches for a special two-hour Goal Zone season wrap-up post-game show on NBC and NBCSN at Noon ET, which will include the emotional scenes from around the grounds, the Premier League trophy presentation, key highlights, and interviews from the final day of the season.
Following Goal Zone at 2 p.m. ET, NBC Sports and Manchester United present a one-hour version of “The Impossible Dream” on NBC. In celebration of the 20th anniversary of Manchester United’s historic 1998-99 season, “The Impossible Dream” looks back at the club’s unprecedented run to the three most prestigious club trophies an English team can win — the Premier League, the FA Cup, and the Champions League. Manchester United clinched the three trophies – known as “the treble” — in a thrilling stretch many fans recall as the “10 Days in May.”
