STAMFORD, Conn. – Sept. 14, 2022 – Popular soccer personalities Roger Bennett and Michael Davies, affectionately known as “The Men in Blazers,” return for their ninth season with NBC Sports, it was announced today.
The full 30-minute THE MEN IN BLAZERS SHOW returns this Sunday, Sept. 18 on Peacock.
“Beyond thrilled to return for a ninth season of Men in Blazers at a time when the game we love — football — is truly flourishing in the United States, the nation we adore. To watch so many young American players take the field in the Premier League week in, week out, is the stuff of dreams. So, to cover the game at this time, is truly the joy of a lifetime,” said Bennett.
Last season’s show featured big-name guests including John Oliver, Premier League players Heung-min Son, Christian Eriksen, and Luke Shaw, Leeds United head coach Jesse Marsch, Chelsea Women’s Super League Club manager Emma Hayes, actors Matthew McConaughey, Will Ferrell and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Mark Cuban, Joe Seaward and Dave Bayley of the Band “Glass Animals,” and more.
Bennett and Davies have also hosted NBC Sports’ shows from The Open at Carnoustie Golf Links in Scotland, and the British Embassy in Washington, D.C., and made a special appearance live from NBC Sports’ Premier League Live fan festival at the Los Angeles Coliseum last year.
