It may be Boxing Day but SBS football show Thursday FC is still Live to air from Sydney, with George Negus joining Matt Okine and David Zdrilic in the studio to discuss his beloved Central Coast Mariners.
As the nation nurses its post-Christmas hangovers and settles in to one of the biggest sporting days of the year, co-host Lucy Zelic will come live from the home of Thursday FC House Party winner Flavkos Rados in Mount Eliza.
The team will also cross to Allianz Stadium to get the latest from the Boxing Day clash between Sydney FC and Brisbane Roar, and they’ll speak to SBS World News Australia Sports Reporter Nick Vindin on board Southern Excellence II in the Sydney to Hobart yacht race – set to be one of the closest races in the event’s 68 year history.
Members of Melbourne Heart FC will drop by to chat about the season ahead, and Sydney rock outfit Gypsies and Gentlemen will provide the soundtrack to a night of football fun and seasonal silliness.
Thursday FC – it’s not just football.
Live 8:30pm Thursday 26 December on SBS 2.
