Geoff Shreeves is a reporter for various channels notably Sky Sports, FOX Sports and BT Sport, Shreeves joined the channel in 1992, the first season of The Premiership and made his reporting debut in 1999 alongside Clare Tomlinson. He is now a regular figure on the touch-line in key matches notably on Sky Sports coverage of the UEFA Champions League and Ford Super Sunday live games.
Geoff started as a booker on the long-running football discussion show The Footballers’ Show presented initially by Richard Keys, and Geoff went on to produce the show. The Footballers’ Football Show was widely regarded as the main football discussion show at the time and featured an impressive cast of over 500 guests during its run including the late Bobby Moore, FA Chief Executive Graham Kelly and Arsenal Chairman, David Dein.
As an on-site producer for all live football coverage Geoff became the Match Director’s eyes and ears on the ground for every game, and this was the role he performed until the end of the 1998-1999 season. The deal signing live coverage of the FA Premier League to Sky Sports meant that Geoff’s skills and experience were called upon for a whole new set of support programmes for football as well as live coverage of the games themselves.
Geoff can now be seen on the touch-line in key matches in the Barclays Premier League as well as on some of the biggest European and International stages. Shreeves still remains a wonderful interviewer in post-match analysis of players and managers and is notorious for his interview with Branislav Ivanovic where he almost reduced the Serb to tears.
Shreeves has developed fantastic relationships with both players and managers and as a result is able to conduct exclusive interviews with high profile personalities and able to extract illusive and rare information like few others. Furthermore, during his time in football and the developed relationships he has forged, Geoff is instrumental in inviting many live guests onto Sky Sports live football coverage, such as George Graham, Alan Shearer, Steve Bruce, Graeme Souness and Garry McAllister.
Geoff is a fantastic football speaker and event host and has experience with brands such as Carlsberg and SportingBet as well as hosting the Football Extravaganza for Nordoff Robins for whom he is an ambassador. His fan base is global and he features as one of the main voices for the FIFA Football video game franchises, testament to his prowess and popularity within football and is often the unforgiving and unsympathetic voice of injury reports on the infamous game series.
Geoff Shreeves is renowned for his passionate and enthralling motivational speeches. His natural style and exuberant spirit allows him to set an audience at ease whilst keeping entertained and on the edge of their seats throughout the course of the presentation. An incredibly accomplished speaker, Shreeves’ wonderfully polished delivery attracts and captures the attention of the audience and his knowledge along with a number of varied tales provide an immensely entertaining performance as a football speaker at any event.
