Late Kick Off is a BBC One regional television football programme which was launched on 18 January 2010, and is shown on Sunday nights during the second half of each season. The first two series however, were shown on a Monday night. The programme covers Football League teams on a regional or pan-regional basis in a magazine-style format,[1] in a similar vein to ITV's Soccer Night, and complement The Football League Show on Saturday nights throughout the season.

The programme is produced in three of the regions (North East and Cumbria, East, South/West/South West) by local independent production companies.[2]
