SuperSport has confirmed itself as Africa’s home of world football after completing a broadcast deal with FIFA for its major international rights for the 2017/18 season.
DStv & GOtv customers’ football experience will be taken to a whole new level with the impending FIFA Confederations Cup in Russia 2017 and the FIFA World Cup, which also takes place in Russia in June 2018. All 64 matches will be broadcast live in High Definition.
Other FIFA events on the broadcast calendar are the FIFA Under-20 and Under-17 World Cups, the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup and, in 2018, the FIFA Under-20 and Under-17 Women’s World Cup tournaments. SuperSport has TV rights to all the games of the FIFA Confederations Cup and the FIFA World Cup across Sub-Saharan Africa including Ghana.
These acquisitions now sit alongside SuperSport’s already substantial offering that includes the major leagues, like the Premier League, La Liga, Emirates FA Cup, Champions League amongst other great sporting content from across the world.
Speaking in an interview Cecil Sunkwa Mills, General Manager, Multichoice Ghana, added that for as little as GHC45 GOtv subscribers will be able to watch FA Cup final, Under 17 Afcon and the Under 20 FIFA World Cup live. Further to this, the Copa Del Rey final, Champions League Final and Europa final will also be live on the DStv this May and June.
“Soccer is among the jewels in the SuperSport crown,” said Gideon Khobane, SuperSport Chief Executive. “We have long enjoyed the thrills of the World Cup and FIFA’s other properties and this new arrangement prolongs what has become a great partnership.”
