"The Likeaballs is a perfect addition to our existing portfolio of pre-school and young children's programming, being a richly-written, action-packed show about football and humour that communicates directly with its audience," explained Alison Homewood, executive VP of worldwide television at Hit.

"The fact that this is endorsed by the Premier League backs this up and will add that extra 'cool' element for audiences worldwide."

Jim Quick, creative director of AAP and creator of the series, added: "We are also taking The Likeaballs global; through our partnership with Hit, the Likeaballs will travel from the UK to the waiting worldwide audience."
