As well as the live events, we have brand new episodes in our poker shows, professional fighting, motorsport and alternative sports.

And there’s also more of The Indoor League, presented by the late cricket legend Fred Trueman.

So here’s the full round up…. Enjoy!

Chessboxing is a hybrid fighting sport combining two traditional British sports, boxing and chess, as competitors take rounds of chess mixed with rounds of boxing until a winner is declared either via knockout or checkmate.

This wild sporting mash-up on Bank Holiday Monday includes the bout between UKIP MEP Jonathan Arnott and Lib Dem activist Toby White. There’s also an enthralling England vs Finland undercard with former IBF world champ Terry Marsh.

 

  1. World Poker Tour.

Bank Holiday Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays at 2pm and Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7.30pm.

One of Front Runner’s most popular shows, World Poker Tour follows the action from the tables of premiere high-stake poker tournaments.

These stars know how to keep calm under intense pressure, even when there’s hundreds of thousands of dollars at stake. And you certainly feel the tension around the table.

 

  1. Poker Night in America.

Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at 9.30pm.

Poker Night in America made its UK debut on Front Runner last year – and straight away became a firm favourite.

As well as following the action, we also get to know the players around the poker table. And there are certainly some characters in this crowd!

 

  1. More professional fighting.

Fights from the Vault. Saturdays at 11pm. (Repeated Mondays at 9pm).

Behind the Fighter. Sundays at 9.30pm. (Repeated Mondays at 8.30pm).

Every weekend, we show fantastic combat sports action on Front Runner and there’s a chance to see professional fighters battle it out in ‘Fights from the Vault’.

These athletes have trained for years to build up the strength and endurance for the events – and fans can watch them in action on the UK’s only free sports channel.

If you missed out on the last series of Behind the Fighter, there’s a chance to catch up every Sunday on episodes about Kane Mousah (Sunday May 7th), Panicos Yusuf (Sunday May 14th), Andy DeVent (Sunday May 21st) and Aaron Aby (Sunday May 28th).

 

  1. The Indoor League. MORE EPISODES!

Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays at 5.30pm. (Repeated Sundays between 1pm and 2.30pm).

The 1970s series has brought back so many happy memories of playing table skittles, shove ha’penny, bar billiards and Yorkshire darts at the village local.

So cricket legend Fred Trueman – with his pipe in one hand and a pint in t’other – is staying on Front Runner with more shows throughout May.
