And they will be providing all of the analysis in a spanking new state-of-the-art studio that includes a number of never-before-seen features in the UK and Ireland.

Those include an LED floor and a virtual canopy roof and it also comes complete with a futuristic super-wide high-res screen to help provide a more immersive viewing experience for fans.

The LED flooring, dubbed the dancefloor, will allow replays to be “shown from any player’s perspective” and allows viewers the chance to see the game from more angles than ever before.

Speaking about the changes, Sky Sports Managing Director Jonathan Licht said: “Sky Sports has been at the forefront of broadcasting innovation since our inception over 30 years ago. 

“The new studio unveiled today demonstrates our commitment to continuing to give sports fans the most entertaining viewing experience possible of the biggest and most-loved events in the sporting calendar.”

The new studio is just part of the changes that Sky Sports have implemented as they look to improve their coverage this season.

And they got off to a great start yesterday with supporters loving the new Sky Sports’ Super Sunday set-up.

Former England striker Daniel Sturridge 33, stole the show as he made his Super Sunday debut for the broadcaster.


He was a part of Sky Sports’ coverage alongside presenter Dave Jones, Roy Keane and Micah Richards for Brentford vs Tottenham and then the heavyweight clash between two of his former sides, Chelsea and Liverpool.

Sturridge who has not retired from football but has been without a club since leaving Perth Glory in June 2022, impressed many with his foray into the world of punditry.

He had earlier won praise for his analysis of Brentford striker Bryan Mbeumo following their 2-2 draw with Tottenham.

And later on he was part of the team assessing Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with Liverpool at Stamford Bridge.

Sturridge had viewers in stitches as he played with fire by doing a cheeky impression of hardman Keane… while standing alongside him.

But the Irishman was even less impressed as Twitter exploded at the Manchester United legend’s reaction to Sturridge telling Trent Alexander-Arnold to “keep it funky with ya boy” in a post-match interview.

And the ex-Chelsea and Liverpool forward even wowed viewers by incredibly singing Usher live on Sky Sports – although many joked that the notorious no-nonsense Keane would soon be handing in his notice.

However, it was not only Sturridge that got people talking as supporters also loved the change on commentary.

Fans hailed Peter Drury as the “biggest upgrade ever” as the commentator made his Sky Sports debut.

It was announced back in June that Drury was replacing Martin Tyler after the legend stepped down from his role at Sky Sports.

The 77-year-old veteran had been the voice of the Premier League for decades.

However, fans were quick to hail the new man Drury, 55, as he stepped into the booth for the first time in his new role.
