SMG announces Sports schedule
Scottish Premier League
Scotsport is back, the only show to bring you all the games and all the goals. Fronted by Jim Delahunt the show returns to the fans favourite slot at Sunday tea-time. The world’s longest running sports programme hits the screen on Sunday 29 July 2001.
Jim Delahunt said: “I grew up with Scotsport on Sunday afternoon, it’s part of the football tradition in Scotland. In recent years we have to reschedule the programme due to Sunday night football, but with the changes in SPL matches it is great to be back on Sunday afternoon???.
Broadcasting of the Champions League starts from the first group stages of the tournament. Scottish and Grampian TV are committed to covering all the matches that Celtic and Rangers participate in, providing both make it through. Coverage of Champions League will continue even if both teams fail to make it beyond the initial qualifying stages.
Starting the following week viewers will see the return of Football First, Scottish and Grampian TV’s comprehensive and exclusive coverage of First Division Football in Scotland. Football First will precede Scotsport on Sunday afternoons. Once again, the only place where you can see all the games and all the goals.
CIS Insurance Cup
This season Scottish and Grampian Television will broadcast live, a game from the quarter-finals, both the semi-finals and of course the final. This exclusive coverage hosted by Jim Delahunt starts towards the end of the year.
Coverage of the rugby season starts Saturday 1 September on S2. The top game of the afternoon is recorded and shown in full later the same day. Highlights of the game can be seen on Scottish and Grampian Television the following day. As with last year, the programmes are hosted by Kathleen Wood with commentary by Scott Hastings and Jim Hay.
