BBC iPlayer has launched 3 episodes so far of Fever Pitch ‘The Rise of the Premier League’ and it is an absolute triumph. The show is documentary in style and reminiscent of Sky’s ‘Premier League Years’ first broadcast in the 90s. Fever Pitch features live footage from the very beginnings of the Premier League alongside new interviews with key players and managers at the time. For us at The Kitsman, it is a great insight into how football kits and merchandise went to the next level as the show also touches on the business side of the game. So far the documentary has dedicated one episode to each season of the Premier League. I say long may it continue. A must watch for all Premier League fans and football fans in general.
