Cardiff City v VfL Wolfsburg live and as live on S4C

01/08/2014

S4C will broadcast the prestigous friendly between Cardiff City and German Bundesliga giants VfL Wolfsburg live on Saturday, 2 August.

The match will be streamed live on Saturday afternoon (kick off, 3.00pm) on the S4C website s4c.co.uk and then shown in full as live at 9.00pm on S4C.

It will be brought to viewers by the S4C Sgorio team, with Dylan Ebenezer anchoring the coverage and Osian Roberts and Malcolm Allen providing insight and analysis.

Cardiff City FC’s match at the Cardiff City Stadium will be ideal preparation for the 2014/15 Sky Bet Championship campaign which starts the following weekend.

Wolfsburg, managed by Dieter Hecking, finished fifth in the Bundesliga and have qualified for the Europa League.

Llion Iwan, S4C Sports and Factual Progammes Commissioner said, "We are delighted to announce that we are showing a live match between one of Wales’ biggest football clubs and a top continental football side. This, along with the recent announcement about S4C’s new Sunday Sports programme Clwb, shows we will strive to broadcast top quality live football coverage whenever rights will allow."

Former Wales and Newcastle forward, Malcolm Allen is really looking forward to this fascinating friendly.

Malcolm Allen says, "Playing Wolfsburg is a huge test for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s new-look side. They need to send a message to the rest of the Championship that they are one of the front-runners for promotion and can bounce back after last season’s disappointing Premier League campaign. They have made some impressive signings, especially up front, but they now need to prove it on the field."

Sgorio: Caerdydd v Wolfsburg - Saturday 2 August. Live on-line, 3.00pm and on S4C, game in full, 9.00pm. English commentary available.
