49ers, TalkSPORT Agree To Broadcast Partnership

National Football League (NFL) franchise, the San Francisco 49ers, have announced a deal with English broadcaster, talkSPORT, to bring the NFL to UK radio.

Under the deal, TalkSPORT will provide full commentary for a minimum of 11 49ers matches, with extra features, including interviews and analysis being broadcast on talkSPORT’s second channel, talkSPORT2.

The majority of the commentary will be provided by the 49ers radio broadcast team, Greg Papa and Time Ryan.

Additionally, the addition of the UK adds to the large 49ers broadcast network, which includes both English and Spanish commentary across 30 domestic affiliates in four states and all of Mexico.

Commenting on the partnership, 49ers chief marketing officer, Alex Chung, said: “Finding a U.K.-based sports radio broadcast partner with national reach was imperative for us and that’s why talkSPORT was our top target in the market.”

“Along with a solid listenership for our compelling 49ers content, talkSPORT also has a large social fanbase that allows us to reach more sports fans throughout the country,” he said.

Talksport host, Will Gavin, added: “The growth of the NFL in the U.K. over the last decade has been exponential, and we couldn’t be more excited to be partnering with one of the league’s top franchises in the 49ers.”

“The Niners boast an avid fanbase on these shores that we are excited to cater for, alongside our wider NFL coverage catering to U.K. fans old and new throughout the season,” he said.

Talksport has also started preparing content for the start of the season and will broadcast the 49ers’ opening match against the Chicago Bears on 11 September.

The announcement comes after the NFL allocated each team access to different global markets under their International Home Marketing Areas (IHMA) scheme.
