Watch Match of the Day 2
- 1 Season
The original Match of the Day show featured the highlights of England's most current soccer matches. The show first appeared on BBC2 on August 22, 1964 and ran almost completely without any problems until 2001 when the relatively new Premiere League awarded the highlight rights to ITV. The result for them was dismal so in 2004 BBC regained rights to air highlights of The Premiere League. Thus the formation of Match of the Day 2. From its creation until 2012, the UK-based sports show was stationed on BBC One. At that time it was moved to BBC 2. From 2004 to 2010 the show was hosted by Adrian Chiles. In 2010 Chiles was replaced by Colin Murray who retained the position for the next two years. Since 2013, the show has been hosted by Mark Chapman. The show in both of its forms remains one of BBC's longest running shows.
