The 77-year-old is a massive part of the heritage of English football as Sky’s lead Premier League commentator since its inception in 1992, with his voice inseparably linked with some of the most iconic moments that the world of football has witnessed.
Martin Tyler said: “In my humble opinion, the huge corporation Sky is today has stemmed from Sky Sports’ innovative and inspired coverage of the Premier League.”
“It has been a privilege to play a small part in the broadcasting history of the greatest league in the world. Along the way I have worked alongside legions of wonderful professionals in all aspects of the television industry. I thank them all for their support and expertise. It has been an honour to be a member of a very gifted team.”
Martin Tyler has called thousands of matches throughout his iconic career, covering Champions League, World Cup and European Championship finals.
His coverage of the breath-taking climax to the 2011/12 season, where he called the magnitude of Sergio Aguero’s dramatic title-winning goal, and the emotion of Manchester City’s first Premier League title triumph will always remain etched in the hearts of every football fan for the upcoming times.
