talkSPORT has teamed up with Germany's Bundesliga to create a new football programme for the 2015/16 football season, for partner stations overseas.

Friday Night Football will air every Friday from 20h00CET and cover the biggest stories in international football and what the station calls a definitive preview of the weekend's action in the top European leagues, with updates from La Liga, Serie A, La Ligue 1, Champions League and international matches.

The centrepiece of Friday Night Football will be exclusive official live match commentary from Germany's Bundesliga. The commentary will have access to Didi Hamann & Raphael Honigstein.

The first Friday Night Football is broadcast on Friday 14th August for talkSPORT partner stations across the world. It won't be broadcast on talkSPORT itself.

Next year, talkSPORT, owned by UTV, is launching talkSPORT2, talkRADIO and talkBUSINESS as well as returning Virgin Radio to the UK's airwaves.
