Jeff Stelling has announced he is leaving Soccer Saturday at the end of the season after over 25 years.
Jeff – who is 68-year-old – revealed the news to step down live on air during this weekend’s Soccer Saturday.
“I’ve been at Sky for more than 30 years and loved every moment of my time as part of the Soccer Saturday team,” said Jeff.
“It is now the right time to move on and give Sky Sports viewers a break from my relentless rants, bad gags and over the top celebrations of Hartlepool United goals. It’s been a lot of fun – for me at least!”
Jeff, who joined Sky in 1992, said in October 2021 that he would be leaving Soccer Saturday at the end of the 2021/22 campaign, but subsequently confirmed he would stay on for another season.
“It is groundhog day, it is that time of the year, every year, where I announce I am leaving Sky Sports and Gillette Soccer Saturday,” Stelling joked. “But this time it is true.”
