Off The Ball has today announced the launch of Ireland's first radio station dedicated solely to sports. 

OTB Sports Radio, the new 24-hour station for Ireland's sports fans, is already live digitally on Offtheball.com.

There will be forty hours of live programmes every week with the latest news, debate and opinion as well as live commentary and interviews from broadcasters including Joe Molloy, Ger Gilroy, Eoin Sheahan and Nathan Murphy.

Around live broadcasts, the station will also be airing some of the best content and interviews produced by the Off The Ball team over the years.

Rugby, soccer, GAA, racing and golf will all feature along with passionate analysis from Off The Ball experts Brian O’Driscoll, Kevin Kilbane, Kieran Donaghy and Tommy Walsh.

The new station will also broadcast a mix of Off The Ball's regular programming as well as new feature shows, ranging from ‘The Football Show’, ‘Golf Weekly’, ‘The Hurling Show’ with Shane Stapleton, ‘Off The Brawl’ with Andy Lee, and of course, the ‘DadCast’, along with hourly sports news updates from the Off The Ball team.

Speaking at the launch, Ger Gilroy, Managing Director at Off The Ball, said: “This is a landmark day for sports media in Ireland, as well as a significant moment in the development of Off The Ball. Listeners to our daily sports show on Newstalk have demanded more and more sports content from us over recent years, and this, therefore, feels like a logical, and very exciting next step.

"Now we will be able to deliver the very best of sports broadcasting, 24 hours a day. We will, of course, also continue to broadcast our show on Newstalk every day between 7pm and 10pm.”

Speaking about OTB Sports Radio, Adrian Serle, Group CEO Communicorp Media commented:

“The Off The Ball team have built an exceptional multi-media sports content brand in Ireland and abroad. Audience scale, engagement, and profile, have rocketed as a result, creating unique marketing opportunities for brands.

"The investment we are now making compliments our Group strategy, and the timing is right for Off The Ball to launch OTB Sports Radio, another great station, now available on the GoLoud app.”

Listeners can tune in to OTB Sports Radio via the new GoLoud app or by clicking here.
