With the Premier League firmly upon us, the NFL season returning on Thursday, and the Champions League a mere two weeks away, the Matchbook Betting Podcast has announced a new roster of hosts. Ali Maxwell (Premier League), Nat Coombs (NFL) and Phil Kitromilides (Champions League) will be delivering weekly focused previews and insights for sports fans.
Matchbook CEO Mark Brosnan said: “One of our key objectives at Matchbook is to bring our bettors closer to their favourite sports and keep them up to speed with the latest news and insights. I am particularly excited about our new line up of hosts who’ll take our podcast offering to another level.”
Maxwell is a freelance presenter, producer and analyst across TV, radio, and podcasting. Host and producer of the Not The Top 20 Podcast, Ali’s expertise can also be seen on Sky Sports EFL Matters and heard on TalkSPORT’s EFL programming.
He commented: “I’m hugely excited to be part of the Matchbook podcast team, hosting the Weekend Football Podcast. Matchbook is known for high-quality betting podcasting across a number of sports, and the commitment to improve their product further is great news for sports bettors.
“I’m honoured to be on a list of podcast hosts for the coming season that includes a number of people I hold in high regard across the broadcasting industry. Working with Aidan ‘Sully’ O’Sullivan and our special guests, some of the best minds in football betting, I look forward to building on the excellent foundation put in place over the last few years, getting the best out of our experts, and taking the Weekend Football Podcast to the next level.”
Coombs has been broadcasting NFL on UK TV & Radio for over ten years, anchoring over 100 games across BBC, Channel 4, FIVE and TalkSport where he currently hosts weekly coverage every Sunday night throughout the season, including the Super Bowl. He writes a weekly NFL column for The Times and is unquestionably one of the UK’s foremost experts on the NFL.
He commented: “I am very excited to be joining the Matchbook podcast team. Podcasting is such an exciting space, and I’m joining some terrific broadcasters in the stable, not to mention working with some great guests on the NFL pod. Bring on the new season!”

He is also the founder and host of The Spanish Football Podcast alongside Sid Lowe, which is the world’s most listened to English language podcast on Spanish football.
He added: “I’m really excited to be covering the greatest club competition in the world for Matchbook this season.
