In Focus: Planet Football

Planet Football Saturday 11.00 am – 12 noon has been an integral part of 2RRR since 2010, commencing as a half hour program and, since 2013, extending to a one-hour program. Carlos Bielli, AKA the Lone Ranger, presents Planet Football making this show one of the only football (soccer) radio shows that broadcasts weekly throughout the year. Guests who have shared their football passion with the Lone Ranger include Rale Rasic (the godfather of Australian Football), Alex Brosque (now with Sydney FC), David Perkovic (Head Coach at the Spirit FC), Ante Covic (2013 Asian goalkeeper of the year), Paul Reid (ex Sydney FC and Socceroos), Gavin Rae (ex Rangers and Scotland international now with Hakoah FC in the State League as player coach), Brian Brown who played against George Best.

Planet Football also crosses live to the US and/or UK on the first Saturday of the month. Future guests who will share their football passion with the Lone Ranger will be Mark Stravoulakis (Football NSW Media Manager), ex Matilda Julie Dolan (who has an award named after her for the W League Player of the Year). Carlos regularly attends football matches as part of the media contingent and recently travelled to Tokyo for the Socceroos WC match against Japan.
