SuperSport Channel Announces Non-Broadcast of AFCON 2023, Emphasizes Commitment to Football Fans’ Entertainment
Johannesburg, South Africa – In a recent development, SuperSport Channel has made the decision to not broadcast the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2023 tournament scheduled to take place from January 13th to February 11th, 2024. The channel cited the inability to secure the broadcasting rights for the tournament as the reason behind this decision.
A holding statement released by SuperSport Channel confirmed that despite not being able to air the AFCON 2023 games, they remain dedicated to providing unrivaled entertainment to football fans across the continent.
The announcement emphasized that AFCON 2023 matches will still be accessible through partner broadcast stations on Free to Air (FTA) channels, ensuring that fans will not miss out on the action-packed tournament.
MultiChoice Africa, the parent company of SuperSport, echoed this commitment, assuring fans that they will continue to have access to a wide range of football content through the DStv and GOt platforms.
This includes popular competitions such as the Premier League, LaLiga, Serie A, and the Zambian Super League, among others.
The decision not to broadcast AFCON 2023 comes as a disappointment to many fans who have enjoyed SuperSport’s comprehensive coverage of football events.
Nevertheless, the company’s focus on ensuring ongoing access to diverse and top-quality football content through alternative channels reaffirms its dedication to meeting the entertainment needs of its audience.
With SuperSport’s commitment to providing a diverse array of football options, the stage is set for an exciting lineup of events, promising to keep fans engaged and immersed in the world of football throughout the AFCON 2023 period and beyond.
