Each Monday during the season, former Socceroo Craig Foster will be joined by a variety of experts for Stan Sport FC, discussing the biggest issues in football from around the world and here at home.
Stan Sport Football Host Max Rushden said: “When you walk into a studio, you can tell very quickly whether there’s a good chemistry between the team, and I’m so happy that we’ve got that at StanSport. Our match coverage has already worked so well with our European experts – supported by a team behind the scenes who primarily love the game. It’s now up to Ed and I to tear up all the good work that’s gone before and wreck it from within. Ed and I are fully focused on that and can’t wait to have some fun on Two Up Top.”
Ed Kavalee said: “Stan Sport have so much great football content and so many great presenters. They also have Max Rushden. I’m very happy to have been brought in as third-choice goalkeeper. In the full kit but with minimal responsibilities.”
Stan director of sport Ben Kimber said: “With Ed and Alicia completing an outstanding lineup, StanSport has built a commentary team that will do justice to the world’s best club football competition. Our first matches of the Champions League last week were analysed on Stan Sport by the most knowledgeable and passionate pundits in the game, now we are adding to that match coverage with Two Up Top, Stan Sport FC and FootballZone to really showcase the great game of football from every angle.”
