When it comes to new music, humour and credible football analysis, Soccer AM has lead the way for a long time. This iconic show is the essential start to your football filled weekend, but you already knew that!
However, during the 2016-17 season Soccer AM have raised their musical pedigree further by introducing live performances, showcasing new talent and legendary artists.

New to Soccer AM? Read this! Soccer AM is a British Saturday-morning football-based comedy/talk show, predominantly based around the Premier League (though also showing clips from The Football League, Scottish Premiership and some European leagues). Originally presented by Jane Hoffen, Gary A. Stevens and Russ Williams, they lasted just a year before Helen Chamberlain and Tim Lovejoy replaced them, where Lovejoy served for over a decade. He has since been replaced by Andy Goldstein and, more recently, Max Rushden who has now been replaced by John Fendley. The show has been aired on Sky Sports 1 each Saturday morning of the football season since 1995 from 7:00am or 9:00am to noon originally and currently between 10:00am and 12:00pm. In early 2009, the 500th episode was broadcast. Although the show is filmed live from 2010 it has been broadcast on a momentary delay due to bad language and/or inappropriate content from certain guests.
Parts of the show have remained since the beginning, whilst new items have been introduced each season. In that respect, it is almost the same every week, the difference being new football footage and comedy skits. Every week sees a new group of celebrity guests, generally featuring at least one footballer who is free on the Saturday, and a mix of musicians, TV personalities, and other sportsmen.
