“The DAZN Soccer Show has finally dropped and it’s going to be fun, it’s going to be fresh, and it’s going to be nonstop informative. I’m ready to bring the energy and daily interviews from the biggest faces in the sport and beyond to soccer fans on DAZN worldwide,” said Oladipo. “From the Premier League to the UEFA Women’s Champions League, Serie A to the FIFA Men’s and Women’s World Cup, the show will cover it all – all things men’s and women’s soccer, all the latest headlines, all the drama, and with a fully global perspective.”
The first show drops this week – just ahead of the Premier League 2022-23 season kick-off – will feature interviews with legends from the league talking about their favorite players to watch, predictions for the season, and other hot topics. Initial guests include Michael Owen (former striker for Liverpool, Real Madrid, and Manchester United), Paul Robinson (former goalkeeper for Leeds United and Tottenham Hotspur), and Andy Cole (the third-highest goal scorer in Premier League history, most remembered for his time with Manchester United). Oladipo will also be getting into it with former head coach of the Canada national women’s team and current head coach of the Canada national men’s team John Herdman, as well as transfer guru David Ornstein.
Coming up later this week will be a drop looking back at the historic 2022 UEFA Women’s Euro championship and sensational win by England’s national team, the Lionesses. Beginning in late August, fans can expect a weekend review show with new content from this dropping every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Additionally, a weekend preview show will have daily drops every Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
