Former Football Player and Manager and current Sky Sports Presenter

Chris Kamara, also known as Kammy, is a former professional footballer and current TV presenter who played for 11 teams during his career.

Once retired from playing football Chris became Manager with Bradford City FC. Although Chris began his TV pundit experience in 1996, while he was still a manager (He worked for Sky Sports, Yorkshire TV and Radio) it was not until his retirement as football manager in 1998 that Chris focused on his TV presenter/commentator career.

Currently, Chris offers his live reports, opinions, and catch-phrase ‘Unbelievable Jeff’ from the gantry at Premiership matches for the ‘Soccer Saturday’ show. He can also be seen most Saturday mornings on Soccer AM and is a columnist for Sky Sports website.

Chris gained worldwide notoriety in 2010 when he failed to realise that a player had been sent off in the game he was watching between Portsmouth and Blackburn. The video went viral on Youtube and had over 3 million viewers around the globe.

Chris became a Special Olympics GB Ambassador in April 2011. When announcing his new role he said: “My first experience of Special Olympics and Unified Football was ahead of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. After that trip I knew I wanted to be involved with the charity and I'm honoured to come on board in an official capacity.”
