SIRIUS' UEFA Champions League coverage kicks off Wednesday, September 27 at 2:45 pm ET with live play-by-play of Inter Milan v. Bayern Munich on channel 125. SIRIUS will air Champions League matches Wednesdays throughout the competition on channel 125, featuring some of the world's most celebrated teams -- Arsenal, FC Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Chelsea FC, Inter Milan, Liverpool, Manchester United, Real Madrid and others -- as they compete for one of the most coveted titles in sports.

The Champions League is the most prestigious soccer club competition in the world, run by the UEFA -- the governing body for European soccer -- and draws the 32 most talented teams from the best leagues in Europe to compete and produce the world's finest perennial soccer contest.

SIRIUS' coverage will include select Group Stage matches and all knockout phase matches, culminating in the one-match Championship final which will take place this season in Athens on May 23.
Miles Palmer, IMG Media's Head of Audio Sales and Distribution Worldwide, said: "We are pleased to continue our relationship with SIRIUS and supply these prestigious soccer games to SIRIUS for its subscribers. These games are arguably the best club competition in the world."
Every Wednesday afternoon on channel 125, SIRIUS will present The Football Show with Giorgio Chinaglia and Charlie Stillitano. On the program, which debuts September 27 (5-8pm ET), Chinaglia, the famed former New York Cosmos and Italian National team striker, and Stillitano, the former GM of the New York New Jersey Metrostars, will review the performances from the Champions League and take an overall look at teams and leagues around the world.

Man were there some terrific games today. Celtic had a nice win over Benfica, and anytime Arsenal or any of the big dogs of the EPL lose its a wonderful result.

Without question the Champion's League is the best football in the world.

Quote:
Hail Hail, the Celts are here,
What the hell do we care,
What the hell do we care,
Hail Hail, the Celts are here,

What the hell do we care now...
For its a grand old team to play for,
For its a grand old team to see,
And if you know the history,
Its enough to make your heart go,
Nine-in-a-row

We don't care what the rangers say,
What the hell do we care,
For we only know,
That there's gonna be a show,
And the Glasgow Celtic will be there.

Sure it's the best damn team in Scotland
and the players they are Grand,
"We support the Celtic"
'cos they are the finest in the land.
We'll be there to give the bhoys a cheer
When the League Flag flies,
And the cheers go up 'cos we know the European Cup
is coming home to rest at Paradise..

Thought I'd bump this thread up.

Ch 125 is now solely a soccer channel. Anyone listen? I catch a game from time to time there and listen to the phone in. The 606 show is great, but days old so it confuses me when they talk about results and teams.

I do listen to this channel. I tune in to the EPL games on the weekends, and once in a while will listen to the replays that they have on during the week.

I will also listen to World Soccer Daily and other programming from time to time. It's a good channel, and I'm glad it's on Sirius, but soccer fans are a minority in this country, so I don't know how many people listen.

On the World Soccer Daily show or the Football show do they talk about Italian Serie A soccer at all? I've only had the chance to listen a few times and they seem to be always discussing the EPL.
