Off the Ball is a radio show broadcast twice a week on Saturdays on BBC Radio Scotland. It takes a satirical and sideways view at football in Scotland, self styling itself as "petty and ill-informed".

The show began in 1995 and is presented by Stuart Cosgrove along with his sidekick Tam Cowan and a weekly guest from the world of football or Scottish culture. Occasionally, other presenters will cover for Cosgrove or Cowan if they are not available.

Features of the show include the Team of the Week, where listeners are invited to contribute players for a subject suggested by Cowan. Former Clyde player Tommy Ring is always included in the team.

A weekly podcast of the show is produced and is available on a Sunday.
