Voiceworks Sport and Wolverhampton Wanderers are collaborating on a brand-new podcast, The Football Gods.
Each week a celebrity is granted godlike power to shape football to their whim and change its past, present, and future.
They will answer questions – from which player they would like to smite, to what would be their one football commandment. Digging deep into each guest’s own football fandom they will remember some of the great (and not so great) sporting moments from their past.
In its first episode, former England legend David Seaman joins hosts Kate Mason and Tim Spiers to discuss a number of contentious topics, including the ongoing debacle of VAR and the offside rule, the Arsène Wenger diet that changed him and David Beckham’s ponytail.
The Football Gods podcast is part of Premier League football club Wolverhampton Wanderers’ strategy to create content that engages a wider audience outside of their core fanbase, something they do through their internal production house Wolves Studios.
Speaking about the show’s launch, Kate Mason, host of The Football Gods said: “It’s incredibly exciting to be a part of bringing a new show to Sport Social Podcast Network and have the opportunity to engage with fans of the beautiful game.
“As a huge football fan myself, I’m looking forward to hearing the thoughts of football enthusiasts from a range of backgrounds – however weird and wonderful their ideas! We can’t wait to grow our audience and have some fun chatting to our guests.”
Jim Salveson, Director of Sport at Voiceworks added: “It’s fantastic to launch this new show in collaboration with Wolverhampton Wanderers. They truly understand the opportunity for Rights Holders within the audio space and its fantastic to be working with them to realise this ambition.
“The Football Gods is a really ground-breaking show in the world of official club content demonstrating ambition to reach fans outside of the clubs traditional fanbase and tap into the culture around sport rather than just focusing on the action on the pitch.”
Episodes of The Footbal Gods are released weekly.
