BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra (also known as just 5 Live Sports Extra or 5 Live Extra) is a national digital radio station, operated by the BBC, and specializing only in extended additional sports coverage. It is a sister station to BBC Radio 5 Live and shares facilities, presenters, and management and is a department of the BBC North Group division.

BBC Radio Five Live Sports Extra launched as part of the BBC’s expansion into digital radio by launching several digital-only stations that would complement existing coverage. At the time of launch, all radio sports coverage was included as part of BBC Radio 5 Live’s mix of news and sport, the longwave frequencies of BBC Radio 4, or on individual BBC Local Radio stations. As these platforms couldn’t appropriately accommodate any additional sports, a new service was launched: BBC Radio Five Live Sports Extra. The station began broadcasts at 2.30 pm on 2 February 2002. Juliette Ferrington introduced the first program – commentary of Manchester United against Sunderland.
