Sportsmate launches podcast ‘Beyond the Score’ sponsored by Stan Sport

Sportsmate has launched a podcast titled ‘Beyond the Score’, sponsored by Stan Sport.

The announcement:

Whether it be Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, Frank Ribery and Arjen Robben, Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard, Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole or Trent Alexander-Arnold and Divock Origi, every side that’s achieved success on the European stage has their own deadly one-two punch.

That’s why Sportsmate has created a 6-part series ‘Beyond the Score’, sponsored by Stan Sport, the home of the UEFA Champions League – to bring fans the next big thing from Europe.

Beyond the Score is one of Sportsmate’s newly launched podcasts, which focuses on some of the most iconic European nights in history. Each episode takes a retrospective glance at some of the competition’s most memorable games with the help of special guests, including Mark Goldbridge, Jesper Olsen and legendary football commentator Clive Tyldesley.

You may remember him from the old ‘FIFA’ games, Tyldesley has been voice of football for more than two decades covering matches across the game’s most prestigious competitions including the UEFA Champions League, World Cup, European Championship and FA Cup.

His commentary has become the soundtrack to games for fans worldwide, including the 2005 Champions League final between Liverpool and AC Milan, which was the topic of the inaugural episode of Beyond the Score.

All episodes proved a huge hit amongst fans, with a combined total of 150,000 listeners across the Podcast Series and a cumulative total of 2.3m minutes enjoyed by fans over 6 weeks.

Nick Guglielmino, Sportsmate Editor said: “It is through our mission to give the fans what they truly want, that we track appointments, seek out the heroes and stars and highlight the emotion embedded in live sport. We report, analyse, forecast, predict and reflect both the highs and lows of the game through a strong passion for sport.”

Beyond the Score is part of Sportsmate’s newly launched Podcast Network (SPN) featuring a collection of sports podcasts produced, distributed and made available to fans and advertisers through a single network. Bringing together a scalable network of accessible sporting talent in the country and around the world, including much-loved identities, influencers and experts, both current and former. Listeners can access their favourite sports content on-demand, wherever and whenever they want.

Other popular podcasts on the network include ‘Good Chat’ and ‘The Sports Media Microscope’ where the team dig into every angle of the game, seeks opinions left and right, while bringing a unique authenticity that builds a strong connection to the audience.
