Nickelodeon U.K. and Ireland has partnered with The Football League to launch "Nick Kicks," a weekly Football League children’s show on the Nicktoons channel that will debut Feb. 6.

"Nick Kicks" will combine Football League match highlights with fun features to keep young viewers entertained throughout 100 episodes. The show will air Saturday mornings until the end of the 2017/18 football season.

The show will include visits to clubs, interviews with players and a regular feature where SpongeBob SquarePants will take on club mascots in weekly challenges.

YouTube personality Roman Kemp and sports presenter Rachel Stringer will host the show.

“We know that U.K. kids love football whether it’s played in stadiums or in the back garden so it is brilliant to be producing a series that will bring families a Nickelodeon take on the nation’s top sport,” says Alison Bakunowich, vice president, head of editorial, Nickelodeon U.K. and Ireland. “Nick Kicks is going to be funny and will give fans a unique look at their favorite clubs and players.”
