Gethin Jones to host NFL Facebook Live show each Tuesday

Posted Sep 7, 2017

Tune-in every Tuesday night at 7pm

NFL UK is to produce a new weekly highlights show on Facebook Live especially for the UK. The show will be released every Tuesday at 7p.m., making it the perfect appetiser for NFL This Week on BBC Two later the same evening.

It is the first show produced specifically for social in the UK.  This show will run through the season up to Super Bowl LII in February, featuring game highlights, along with the latest storylines, big plays and bigger personalities. You can watch the first show here again.

The show will be hosted by TV presenter Gethin Jones., an avid fan of the NFL, best known for his time on Blue Peter, his morning radio show on the Heart network and for his appearances as a competitor and host on Strictly Come Dancing. “The show is reflective of and invaluable to the growth of the NFL in the UK,” he said. “It will be a 20-minute look-back and look-forward and will be fun, informal and engaging.

“This will be an interactive show, changing every week to react to the most recent games and events. It is audience-driven and will promote fan engagement with polls, activities and live reactions. Keep an eye out for the Fantage point feature, which gives viewers unparalleled access to a fan’s stadium viewpoint of the game’s biggest moments.”

Local versions are also being created for Canada and Mexico, helping the NFL to engage with its large international fanbase.

To get the best highlights and to see how UK fans are reacting to their teams’ latest results, tune in every Tuesday at 7pm at the NFL’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/NFL/.
