SIRIUS signs an agreement with the U.K.'s CHELSEA FOOTBALL CLUB to become the team's exclusive satellite radio provider. SIRIUS, which currently airs multiple ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE games, will air every CHELSEA game live this season on channel 125, starting with this SATURDAY's match against FULHAM at 10am ET. And, before each CHELSEA game, soccer luminaries GIORGIO CHINAGLIA and CHARLIE STILLITANO will host the hourlong "CHELSEA TRUE BLUE" pre-game show.
Meanwhile, CHINAGLIA and STILLITANO have been tapped to host "THE FOOTBALL SHOW," a weekly, three-hour soccer talk show that SIRIUS will debut on SEPTEMBER 27 at 5pm ET.
