Nihal Kicks Off the new Premiership season on the BBC Asian Network

BBC Asian Network DJ Nihal starts the new football season with a bang on August 19th introducing a new Desi flavour to the Premiership, promising big names like you’ve never heard them before.

Nihal, the on air partner of Bobby Friction on Radio 1 will bring a constant stream of footy news, star interviews goal alerts and general mayhem to the Asian Network airwaves.

The Essex geezer who went to the same school as his Tottenham hero Glenn Hoddle will bring his earthy charm to a football show like no other.

In the first week Nihal offers a chance to win the Premiership Trophy in your house club workplace or school. Yes the real one that Chelsea won last season !

The show also features :

The Kickin’ Line – where listeners vent their spleen about the Football issues of the day

Informer – Premiership Players dish the dirt on their teammates. Who has the worst dress sense? Who is the most bling? Who don’t you want to be stuck in a lift with?

The Desi Doctor – who offers tips style advice and generally interferes with the cream of Premiership Talent

And Kicking Off will give listeners a chance to win Premiership tickets each week

Building on the close relationship between football and music, Nihal will introduce exclusive plays of new tracks to the Premierships finest, he said:

“We’re going to play them Asian tracks and see which ones they rate and which ones they don’t like as much! Music is a great in with players; they love to club, they love to go out and dance and some of them are very, very knowledgeable about music”
