Initially established as an informative online football portal for SBS in 2000, The World Game
grew a cult following from the Australian football community and in 2002 a television program by the same name was launched, replacing the 21-year-old World Soccer
program.The World Game
soon developed a reputation as a comprehensive, influential and entertaining football program, hosted by Mr Football himself, Les Murray
, and today is recognised as the home of local and international football news in Australia.
SBS sport presenter and commentator David Basheer
also hosts the show, and both he and Les are joined each Monday night by SBS Chief Football Analyst Craig Foster
and SBS Football Analyst David Zdrilic
, among other guests. Les also hosts the highlights of the week’s best football matches from across the globe in Les Murray’s Football Feature
each Sunday at 11am.
Heralding from a strong football family, Mariana Rudan
also reports on football across all platforms: television, radio and online, while also presenting regular segments and other football coverage. Scott McIntyre
