They Think It's All Over is a British comedy panel game with a sporting theme.

The show's name is taken from Kenneth Wolstenholme's famous 1966 World Cup commentary quotation, "they think it's all over...it is now!" and the show used the phrase to sign off each episode. In 2006 the show was axed after 11 years on-air.

Kenneth Wolstenholme, DFC & Bar (17 July 1920 – 25 March 2002) was an English football commentator for BBC television in the 1950s and 1960s. In the final moments of the 1966 FIFA World Cup, he said “some people are on the pitch...they think it's all over....it is now!” as Geoff Hurst scored England's fourth goal. The phrase became part of British popular culture.
