Geoff Shreeves

Geoff Shreeves is a reporter on Sky Sports. He joined the channel in 1992, the first season of The Premier League. Shreeves went to Verulam School in St Albans.[1] He made his reporting debut in 1999 alongside Clare Tomlinson. He can now be seen reporting on the touch-line in Premier League matches live on Sky Sports. Shreeves can also be seen reporting for Fox Sports before Champions League games. Shreeves is also a regular presenter for The Debate on Sky Sports.

He appears in the football video games FIFA 14 and FIFA 15, providing injury updates during played matches.[2]

Immediately following Chelsea's victory over Barcelona in the 2012 UEFA Champions League semi-final, Shreeves memorably asked Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanović during a live interview: "Were you booked after the penalty?" Ivanović responded: "Yeah, I was". Shreeves then told him: "You know that means you're out of the final now?" Ivanović appeared confused and turned towards teammate Ashley Cole, who was standing to his right, while Shreeves continued: "Unfortunately it means you don't play in the final". The Guardian later described it as a "broadcasting outrage".[3]
