Sky Sports Racing has revealed the on-screen talent for the Racing League. The anchor team for the points and team-based competition will be Alex Hammond, Josh Apiafi and Leonna Mayor who will be joined by special guest presenters including David Lloyd, Michael Holding and Rosie Tapner.
The six Racing League fixtures will be broadcast live and exclusive on Sky Sports Racing with new-look graphics and production innovations.
The Sky Sports Racing presentation team will be on site at Newcastle, Doncaster, Lingfield and Windsor with access to jockeys, trainers and racing managers to help convey the tactics, rivalries and drama from inside the 12 team camps.
The inaugural Racing League starts on 29 July at Newcastle, and takes place over six Thursday evenings.
Rob Dakin, director of Sky Sports Racing, said: “We are really excited about how we can reflect the ground-breaking format of the Racing League series. Sky Sports is the perfect place to do it and while the racing coverage itself will be familiar to our viewers, everything else around it will say this is something different. We have some very exciting presentation talent to welcome alongside Alex and some of our regular team.”
Alex Hammond added: “It’s always exciting to see innovation in sport and I can’t wait to be involved with the Racing League this summer. As we’ve seen in other sports, fans are keen to embrace new formats, and at Sky Sports Racing we look forward to bringing this new competition to our viewers and hopefully attract a new audience too.”
Oli Harris, chief marketing officer, Racing League said: “It’s a huge thrill for us to work with the talent that Sky Sports Racing has at its disposal. In Alex, Josh and Leonna we have three people that represent what Racing League is all about. David Lloyd and Michael Holding are legends of the sporting world and add something to our coverage that no one else could, and in Rosie we have one of the best young crossover talents out there. I’m confident the fans are going to really enjoy the show.”
