Hi there, I'm wondering if anyone can help me. I am looking for the piece of music played on Sky Sports during football matches. The song is usually played when the first half is finished, before they go onto the adverts. It is also played durig internal Sky adverts, such as advertising next weeks games etc.
The game that this piece of music was on was the Aberdeen vs Hibernian game last Saturday!
Can anyone help! I really want to know what tune this is!

Hi there StevenHibs, I've asked a question almost similar to yours. It's a piece frequently used on Sky Sports Super Sunday. Orchestral music with lots of violins I presume?
It's by TOBY (not Tim) Bricheno, a.k.a. Schorched Score Music. The piece is called Game Theory. You can listen to it on Grooveshark and download from Spotify.

Do bear in mind that Scorched Score Music is sort of like an orchestral production company that produces bespoke music for trailers, adverts, TV programmes and movies. I've managed to find three different versions of "Game Theory" through Google. I think that probably explains why you say the one you found is very close to the one you heard.
The only people on Sky who would be certain about the music used in programmes are the production staff that work on the show. I'm sure it's difficult for the personnel working on these Help Centre Forums to contact these staff, maybe their responses are through hearsay and multiple emails, but I'm quite sure the piece used frequently on Sky Sports Super Sunday is "Game Theory" by Scorched Score Music.

I am also looking for two pieces of music so I thought I use this thread before opening another one.The music was played at the beginning of the pre-match section of this year's CL Final right after the CL anthem (the first during the aerial shots closing in on the Allianz Arena, the second during Frank Lampard's 'tale' of Chelsea's march towards the final).I've been trying to find them myself,but with no success.I really hope someone here can help me.
Thanks in advance
