Trips to Swansea and Walsall for ITV's English Football League Highlights
18 March 2023
Over the last two weekends, I've again reported across ITV channels looking at the work football clubs do in their community.
Despite challenging weather conditions, features shot in South Wales and the West Midlands were broadcast on ITV1 and ITV4 and explored challenges faced by under-represented groups.
In Swansea, I told the story behind the club's new stadium inclusion room while in Walsall, I explored how the Saddlers support the local Afghan Welfare Centre. Both features were shot on matchday before being broadcast later in the evening.
ITV hold a two-season partnership with the EFL (the English Football League) and show every goal from every EFL fixture. As well as offering detailed analysis from a panel of expert pundits, they also showcase clubs' work in the community.
You can watch the reports in full on ITVX, featuring during episodes 42 and 43 of the programme.
