English-language subtitles will be provided for the whole Sgorio football
programme from now on, S4C has announced.
The Channel already provides English soundtrack for their live Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League match coverage on the Channel’s football flagship show Sgorio on Sundays.
But now after consulting with S4C viewers, the Football Association of Wales and Welsh football clubs, S4C will provide live English subtitles, not only for the match itself but for all Sgorio’s build-up to the live match and the post-match interviews and analysis.
The English subtitling service can be enjoyed on Sgorio on Sunday, 19 October when Nicky John, along with former Wales forward Malcolm Allen among others, present the Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League match Bala Town v Port Talbot (coverage starts at 1.15pm, kick off 1.30pm).
For details on how to get English subtitles on S4C or the English soundtrack, please visit the S4C website, s4c.co.uk or contact the S4C Viewers’ Hotline, firstname.lastname@example.org or 0870 600 4141.
Llion Iwan, S4C’s Content Editor for Sport and Factual Programmes said, “We are delighted to announce the new English language subtitling service for Sgorio. It’s sure to further enhance the viewers’ enjoyment of our popular live Sunday afternoon football programme and hopefully attract new viewers.”
Gwyn Derfel, The Corbett Sports WPL Secretary adds, “This is a significant development in the coverage of our National League. It will be well received by many Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League fans and let’s hope that it will also attract new supporters to our ever developing League.”
