Robbie Lyle AFTV

Sunday 10th March

6pm

The Cambridge Union

Robbie is perhaps best known for being the face of AFTV (previously known as Arsenal Fan TV), which is just one of many Global Fan Network channels that also includes DR Sports, a channel that takes on the issues of the day in a multitude of global sports such as Boxing and Formula 1.

Robbie has single-handedly built Global Fan Network from scratch. His approach has been to build his channels ‘socially’, in the truest sense of the word. He has always described, and delivered, his channels as being fan-first. His approach, he says, was to take ownership of the pre and post-match conversation from broadcasters, with views from genuine, passionate fans.

Robbie is one of the most prominent black voices in UK sports media and is one of the only black personalities to own a successful media company in UK sport.

Robbie has frequently appeared on BBC, ITV and Talksport. In 2018, Robbie produced the fan popular ‘Real Football Fan Show’ for Channel 4, and in March 2020 he hosted and narrated the ITV documentary ‘Under Their Skin’ which focused on racism in football, and the experiences of black football supporters in the UK.

Robbie is also extremely active in his community. He delivers insightful talks at educational institutions, such as TedX talks at Warwick University and presentations at Westminster school, Bristol University, Eton and the Oxford Union.
