About David Stowell
As a TV and Radio commentator with over a decade of broadcasting experience and a talented linguist to boot, David Stowell loves to talk to anyone who will listen… and these days, many people do.
He has worked for the biggest broadcasters in the business covering every level of football from youth team games to high-profile international matches, commentating on location on 5 continents in the process.
David played a major role in ITV Sport’s coverage of Euro 2016 from France and is a regular on the mic for their European & International football output as well as Sky Sports’ Premier League programming. His TV journey began working alongside Hammond, May and Clarkson on Top Gear, before a successful spell as a presenter and reporter for ITV News. He then moved on to become one of the main faces and voices of Manchester United Television, travelling on pre-season tours to the US, Asia and South Africa, presenting Champions League Final coverage live from Moscow in 2008 and working closely with the club’s young emerging stars before they were famous e.g. Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford & Danny Welbeck.
As a Spanish speaker, David has translated for and interviewed many of Manchester United's recent foreign stars including David de Gea, Carlos Tevez and Angel Di Maria. In fact, languages have played a big part in his life and career with French, German and Welsh translation & conversation providing a break from the commentary box.
After having trials at Cardiff City Football Club, David’s studies led him to play semi-pro football in Northern Spain and then back to his homeland with Barry Town. David’s radio career has seen him appear on talkSPORT, BBC Radio Wales and XS Radio Manchester and he has also commentated on Rugby and Futsal for Setanta Ireland, The FA and Premier Sports.
