It seems like no time at all since the drama of the last day of the 2006/07 Premier
League season... and already the wait is nearly over.

And with the new campaign comes a new look for Match of the Day and Match of
the Day 2. Jim Irving Executive Producer of Sport for the BBC explains:



We've made various changes, some subtle, some more obvious than others. The
first change you'll probably notice is a new set of titles for both programmes.
Gone are the badges emerging from stadiums across the country - the new titles
include some of the Premier League's biggest names.



We'll be able to reveal more about the new titles, as well as show you some
exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, a little later in the week.

As well as new titles we also have a new set and new programme logos. The new
set is a first for BBC Sport. Instead of two medium size sets, one for Match of the
Day and one for Match of the Day 2, we now have a single set for all of BBC
Sport's output.

As you can see from the pictures, it's a fantastic space. The set is made up of
backlight perspex panels that can be lit up in any colour. Wrapping around the
back of the set is a huge video wall that we can project any image we design on
to, giving each of the programmes a unique look.

The quality of the images from the seven projectors and High Definition server are
amazing and will bring the set to life.


Incorporated into the new set are new programme logos, which we've updated to
give them a more contemporary and three-dimensional feel. The logos will also
have a much greater prominence throughout the programmes.

The plan is to use them as devices to introduce match edits on the Saturday night
programme and they'll also feature in highlights of the goals from the Saturday
games on the Sunday programme.



I hope you'll like the improvements we've made. I'm sure you'll want to give us
plenty of feedback!​

I watch just about every football programme on TV including MOTD & MOTD2. They can change the set as much as they like but it doesn't hide the fact that the BBC have no Premier League matches live, shorter highlights than Sky, worse presenters and commentators than Sky and a late time slot by which time the goals have already been on Sky and other news channels!
