Current host Jeff Stelling joined the programme in and became its sole presenter a year later. The name of the programme changed to Soccer Saturday in From the start of the —11 season these simulcasts were dropped and for the next three seasons the programme was exclusive to Sky Sports News but this Sky Sports 1 simulcast returned for the —14 season as part of Sky Sports 1's new all-day Saturday football service.
The programme begins with the host and four regular in-studio pundits previewing the weekend's matches, reviewing recent results and debating current issues in football.
The show is also famous for the rapport between the pundits and the presenter. There is much banter between the pundits and Jeff Stelling, who, in a good humoured manner, often points out each other's mistakes and incorrect predictions. Stelling exuberantly celebrates goals scored by his favourite team Hartlepool United.
Viewers are kept updated on the progress of early kick-offs by reporters at the games and by graphics below and to the right of the director's cut. These graphics also includes latest team news and league standings. The graphics display a vidiprinter and cycle through current scores in the English and Scottish leagues, with Jeff Stelling providing commentary on the events as they unfold.
Significant events at the most high-profile games — almost always in the Premier League — are described by the studio panel who each watch a game on a monitor.
Other games deemed important are reported on by correspondents at the grounds connected to the studio by a video link, ISDN or telephone. A commercial break then follows and this is when the vidiprinter is removed from the screen.
For the final 45 minutes of the programme the studio pundits discuss the games they have been watching, and post-match interviews with players and managers are shown.
Stelling no longer presents Soccer Saturday during the international break, with duties being handed over to Julian Warren. Soccer Special[ edit ] A programme with the same format is also broadcast when there are a number of midweek games, such as on UEFA Champions League nights, in which case it is known as Soccer Special.
Since , Soccer Special has been hosted by Julian Warren. Between —, Ed Chamberlin presented the programme.
He had previously shared presenting the programme with Ian Payne during the previous season. Soccer Special was hosted by Stelling until he began presenting Monday Night Football at the start of the —06 season.
The midweek Soccer Specials are often simulcast on Sky Sports 1. The Soccer Special name is also used when a full afternoon programme of football is played on a day other than Saturday, which usually only occurs on Boxing Day , New Year's Day unless that falls on either Friday or Sunday and Easter Monday as well as the last day of the Championship and the last day of the Premier League season as both are normally played on a Sunday.
On these occasions the programme is usually presented by Stelling and follows the normal Soccer Saturday format. This again was presented by Ed Chamberlin.
The programme did not return in or , but was revived in July , although it was presented by regular Sky Sports News presenters.
This programme, similar to the old Sports Saturday format, was initially presented by Ed Chamberlain but since his promotion in early to additional football presenting duties on Sky Sports, is now presented by other presenters from the Sky Sports News roster.
Rodney Marsh was a regular pundit, known for his outspoken views, until being sacked by Sky Sports in early after a joke referencing the Indian Ocean tsunami.
