SAINTS legend Matt Le Tissier will be among the guest stars when BBC A Question of Sport’s biggest ever live tour lands in Southampton on Tuesday 30 November.

The Saints Premier League record goalscorer will join double Winter Olympic gold medal winner Lizzy Yarnold, British 400m record holder and Saints fan Iwan Thomas and cricket World Cup winner Ebony Rainford-Brent at the Mayflower Theatre (7:30pm). 

They will be alongside long-time host Sue Barker and popular team captains Matt Dawson and Phil Tufnell, with A Question of Sport Live giving fans a chance to see the show up close in a live environment.

The live shows, brought by Cuffe and Taylor, Live Nation and Simon Fielder Productions in association with BBC Studios, will also be a lap of honour for Barker, Dawson and Tufnell, who stepped down from the TV show earlier this year.

Ben Hatton, Director of Theatre Touring for Cuffe and Taylor, said: “This tour has been two years in the planning so we cannot wait for these unmissable shows to happen.

“We are delighted to be able to announce a host of sporting favourites – including many world champions, Olympians and household names – will be joining Sue, Matt and Phil.

“Demand for tickets has been truly phenomenal so I would advise any fans to not delay in getting theirs.”

Final tickets for A Question of Sport’s first live tour in more than a decade are available via
