Now in its eighth series, Sky 1’s panel show, A League of Their Own, is firmly established amongst the elite with its blend of sports, comedy and entertainment.
And the show that invented the ‘Mobot’, ‘tattooed’ One Direction’s Niall Horan, and introduced Olympic skeleton champion Amy Williams to the world of rally co-driving, has been confirmed for a further three series.
Adam MacDonald, Director, Sky 1, said: “A League of Their Own’s energetic blend of sport and big hearty laughter has grown to become one of Sky 1’s strongest returning series. Its popularity with Sky customers is a thing to treasure and I’m delighted we have agreed a three year deal to continue that success story.”
Series 8 will be broadcast in summer 2014, with James Corden back in the hosting seat alongside regular team captains Jamie Redknapp and Freddie Flintoff, and permanent panelist Jack Whitehall. Series 9 is slated for 2015, Series 10 for 2016, and Series 11 for 2017.
