tribal footballIn the United States, college football is winding down (or up, depending on how your favorite team is doing) for championship bowl games. Professional (US) football is likewise midway through its competition schedule, which culminates in the TV commercial extravaganza Super Bowl in early February.
This seemed like a good time to mention a few new football podcasts that have recently come to our attention which aren’t of the Big Twelve or NFL kind.

Another new football podcast, this kind the Futbol/Soccer/Calcia kind, has been launched this week by The Daily Football Podcast promises a round-up of the latest news, interviews and views on all the big soccer-related stories of the day.

The other kind of football podcast we heard about this week was all about rugby. The Rugby Football Union (RFU) in the UK has a new podcast series, “The Gillette Rugby Podcast,” sponsored by Gillette Grooming (think: razors and shaving). The “Gillette Rugby Podcast” will be a weekly 8 ‚Äì 10 minute audio podcast, available during the rugby season. The first installment features England‚Äôs Investec Challenge match against Argentina.

November’s rugby podcasts will give fans an exclusive opportunity to hear about England’s performances in the Investec Challenge series direct from the players and coaches themselves.

The Gillette Rugby Podcast is produced by The Broadcasting Company, Europe’s largest radio sports agency, which provides coverage of major sports to radio stations and networks world-wide. In the UK, The Broadcasting Company is the exclusive provider of rugby and other sports to Independent Radio through IRN.
