Rachel Stringer is one of the most exciting presenters to emerge in recent years. She is a regular reporter for BBC1's flagship football programme Football Focus, interviewing some of the Premier League's biggest stars. This follows making her debut on Match Of The Day for the BBC in 2015. In the same year she hosted MOTD Kickabout for CBBC and Kickabout+ an all-sports show including features on Skateboarding, NFL, Cricket etc. She is also the face of Studs Up – a football podcast for goal.com, which reaches over 60 million football fans around the world every month.
Over the summer, Rachel fronted a series of marathons and triathlons for Channel 4 including the Tobago International Sea To Sea Marathon, which saw competitors run 26.2 miles from the Caribbean Sea to the Atlantic Ocean. Since 2015 she has hosted Live@Wimbledon, the official online channel of the Wimbledon tennis championships.
Rachel is the host of ITV's brand new show World of Sport: Wrestling, which initially aired over the Christmas 2016 period with a 2-hour special. She also fronted the 2016/17 Emirates FA Cup campaign for FA TV, the Football Association's in-house TV channel. Rachel regularly contributes to ESPN and Aston Villa FC TV as well as Strongman Champions League, which airs on 5Spike and is distributed internationally.
One of Rachel's proudest moments was being asked to co-host the 2017 PFA Awards from the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane – the most prestigious awards ceremony in the footballing calendar.
Rachel was the main anchor at the 2017 Women's Hockey World League Semi-Finals for BT Sport. She was previously part of the team on Matchday Live with Fletch and Sav, interviewing Premier League footballers and managers with her fun and engaging personality, live from grounds around the UK. Rachel helped launch BT Sport back in the summer of 2013 as a researcher but was soon fast-tracked to the on-air talent team where she was a regular on BTSP – BT Sport's digital platform aimed at a younger audience and also featured across SportsHub, WSL (Women's Super League football), Conference Football, NBA and Transfer Deadline Day. She also co-hosted the World Freestyle Football Championships live from the O2 Arena and was the host of BT Sport's Action Woman show.
She is the former presenter of Nick Kicks – the Football League highlights programme for Nickelodeon and Sky Sports. She has also hosted two series of Airmageddon, a CBBC show from the creators of Robot Wars.
Rachel made the transition to presenting following an outstanding junior athletics career, which culminated in a silver medal in the 800m at the Commonwealth Youth Games in India. Sadly, injury curtailed her time on the track and took away her dream of competing at the London Olympics in 2012. It was that injury which forced Rachel to focus on working in front of the camera and she presented in the Olympic Stadium as a reporter for Samsung. This led to further behind the scenes work before her career started to take off at BT.
She hasn't totally turned her back on running though; she has completed several half-marathons and ran the London Marathon in 2015 & 2016 clocking an impressive time of 3:00:15! Rachel is an ASICS FrontRunner Ambassador and also a contributor to Women's Running magazine; she was featured on the cover of the December 2016 issue.
