Premier League returns on Boxing Day with NBC talent in the UK
Boxing Day is one of the favorite days of the season for English Premier League fans. And this year will be special for two reasons. First, it features the first Premier League matches after the World Cup break. Second, the entire NBC Sports studio crew will be in England. They call games and report from the counters on the field.
The tradition of Boxing Day, the day after Christmas Day, is uniquely British. The National Day is a time for families to spend more time together. And if you’re a football fan, that always means a choice of many games to choose from that are played all over the British football pyramid.
For Boxing Day 2022, NBC Sports has planned numerous festive games for football fans across the United States of America.
