Sky Sports is to show a new Saturday morning TV programme aimed at children.

‘Game Changers’ – which aims to get more children involved in sport – will feature regular appearances from a host of sports stars and Sky Ambassadors including David Beckham and Jessica Ennis-Hill to inspire kids to participate and get them active.

David Beckham will host football masterclasses during the series and Olympic champion Jessica will have some fun teaching the seven events of a heptathlon.

Broadcast live in front of a live studio audience of young people, the show will be presented by Olympic Gold medallist Darren Campbell and Former Sky Sports Golf presenter Di Dougherty. Paralympic wheelchair rugby captain Steve Brown will be among the show’s reporters.

“We love sport and believe in its power to inspire young people to get active, have fun and learn new skills,” said Barney Francis, Sky Sports managing director.

“Game Changers is the first show of its kind and a brilliant addition to the Sky Sports schedule – I know my own kids will love it. Alongside Sky Sports Living for Sport, Sky Ride and the Sky Sports Scholarships scheme, it’s another demonstration of our commitment to all levels of sport from elite level to grass roots.”

Game Changers will be broadcast live in a regular slot on Sky Sports 1 at 9am on Saturdays. The first show is on 17 August 2013.
