Match of the Day 2
Match of the Day 2 is a football highlights programme shown on BBC One in the United Kingdom having previously been shown on BBC Two up until 2012. It was created in 2004 when the BBC regained the right to broadcast Premier League highlights. Broadcast on Sunday evenings, usually later than 10 p.m., it is advertised as a "light-hearted look at the Premier League's action", referring to its more fan focused presentational style than the Saturday night version. Launched with an anchor of Adrian Chiles and analysis from two pundits. Adrian Chiles became popular in this role. In 2010 he was replaced by Colin Murray who left Channel 5 to take up the position at the beginning of the 2010/11 season and to also host the BBC World Cup coverage in 2010. In early 2013 it was announced that Mark Chapman who had hosted MOTD2 before when Colin was unavailable and also hosted Final Score would replace Murray at the start of the 2013-14 season. It was then announced Colin will stay with the BBC presenting darts and American football. Like its sister programme, it is broadcast from MediaCityUK in Salford Quays on the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal in Greater Manchester.
