Radio 1 and Sport team up to offer nation "alternative commentary" for World Cup 2010


This year, the BBC is giving fans the opportunity to watch two of the 2010 World Cup games with an alternative commentary via the Red Button by BBC Radio 1 presenters Chris Moyles and Comedy Dave.

Chris and Dave will be commentating on New Zealand versus Slovakia on Tuesday 15 June and then Germany versus Serbia on Friday 18 June – both matches kick off at 12.30pm.

These games will also be streamed live on the Radio 1 and BBC Sport websites.

Chris and Dave’s unique style of commentary will be irreverent, comical and almost certainly factually inaccurate.

Chris Moyles says: “If you want slick commentary then watch BBC One, but if you’d like something hilarious and unprofessional then hit the red button and you can hear mine and Dave’s alternative commentary.”

Comedy Dave adds: “When we say ’alternative’, we mean alternative to good.”

During the World Cup, Radio 1 listeners are being given the chance to go to some of the biggest events and experience the best live music of the Summer from Download to Glastonbury and from T In The Park to the British Grand Prix.

While they are there, they will also get to watch the World Cup matches.
