Brought to you in association with our colleagues at Radio TynesideÂ North Sport brings live coverage of all home Newcastle United games and a roundup of all sporting fixtures.
If youâ€™re a Newcastle United Fan and in hospital then we have a real treat for you. We have teamed up with Radio Tyneside to bring you live commentary from every home game.
Commentators Max Taylor and Paul Laverick are assisted by engineer Steve Emerson to bring all the action from the games directly to the bedside. Commentaries are also relayed across the ground to the visually impaired area where those fans are seated.
Football on Radio Tyneisde has a long history; in fact Maxâ€™s father Tom Taylor was involved in the original commentary service, which started way back in 1951.
The football matches are available to listeners in Bishop Auckland Hospital and Darlington Memorial Hospital. Due to contractual reasons the service is only available within the hospital and not online.
