Matt Lucas, Elis James & Andrew Mensah return to Sky Max

With another raucous Premier League season in full swing, Sky has confirmed that hosts Matt Lucas and Elis James – along with fellow football fanatic and comedian Andrew Mensah – will be back with a second series of Fantasy Football League, returning to Sky Max  in early 2024.

The second Sky run of Fantasy Football League will continue to delight fans old and new as it honours the format of the cult original series, with Matt and Elis combing over the week’s football news sharing hilarious clips and anecdotes. Also returning is the much-loved ‘Phoenix From The Flames’ segment – where a famous moment from footballing history is recreated with an array of iconic players. Already lined up for the upcoming series are Jack Wilshere, Gabby Agbonlahor, Wes Morgan, Pedro Mendes, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Jermain Defore, Emile Heskey and more.

Each week, a pair of celebrity guest managers will sit on the legendary sofa to chat about their love of the beautiful game and reveal hilarious personal stories around their diehard football fandom. While the line-up for series two is still to be announced, ‘guest managers’ from series one included: Maisie Adam, Doc Brown, Sir Mo Farah, Tom Grennan, Russell Howard, Guz Khan, Roman Kemp, Sally Lindsay, Gabby Logan, Chris McCausland, Sir Trevor McDonald, Sam Quek, Rachel Riley, Jennifer Saunders, AJ Tracey and Jamie Winstone.

The eight-episode series will, as always, ask viewers to join in and compete with the celebrity guest managers each week. Watch some memorable moments from series one HERE.
