Ranking A Commentator’s Life with Derek Rae

3 March 2021

There’s a familiar voice in the Ranks FC studio this week, and not because it’s a returning guest, but because it’s the Voice of FIFA, Bundesliga Broadcast Behemoth, and one of the finest commentators to ever grace the microphone, Mr. Derek Rae, who joins the Rank Squad to talk all things commentary.

We start off with Derek’s own background and how he started life behind the mic, before taking a waltz through five pillars of his glittering commentary career: Preparation, Pronunciation, FIFA, Clich├ęs and Experiences – to get the complete package of just what makes the great man tick when he’s in the booth.

Thanks for listening, Rank Squad!
