Sky have announced the brand-new line-up that will join hosts Matt Lucas and Elis James on the Fantasy Football League sofa each week as the 2022 summer transfer window comes to an end. In the 16-episode run, Matt and Elis will be joined by comedian and football enthusiast Andrew Mensah, who will manage the celebrity league and provide weekly humorous highlights from the sport.
Sadly there is no return for Frank Skinner and David Baddiel, but I am guessing they are not woke enough in 2022.
Each week, a pair of celebrity guest managers will join to chat about the week in football and share their fantasy teams from the digital dugout. Well-known faces lined up to appear on the new series include Succession's Brian Cox, Jennifer Saunders, Tom Grennan, Roman Kemp, Sir Trevor MacDonald, AJ Tracey, Sam Quek, Sir Mo Farah and many more.
With Matt and Elis searching through the week's news for amusing clips and anecdotes, as well as the return of the beloved Phoenix from The Flames segment, where a famous moment in football history will be recreated with some very well-known faces, Fantasy Football League will try to delight fans both old and new.
Fantasy Football League will air on Sky Max from 29 September.
