Supersport will broadcast live all 64 matches of the FIFA World Cup 2022 to be held in Qatar, after securing a broadcast deal with FIFA.
This continues SuperSport’s long-standing association with football’s governing body. SuperSport’s pay TV broadcast rights extend to all platforms across sub-Saharan Africa and represent even more opportunities to provide fans with compelling live content.
High Definition coverage will be across multiple channels with expert analysis, in-depth digital offerings, supplementary programming and much more in keeping up with the grand scale of the event.
The World Cup will be held for the first time from November 21st to December 18th, and the first to be held in one city. 32 teams from across the world will take part in the competition.
The FIFA acquisition sits alongside SuperSport’s already substantial offering that includes all the major football leagues from around the world.
“This is fantastic news, especially after the success of the 2018 tournament, a fitting celebration of the beautiful game. The FIFA World Cup always excites fans and the kick-off times will be most convenient for our viewers, given friendly broadcast time-zones,” said Marc Jury, Chief Executive of SuperSport.
SuperSport is a premier sports broadcaster, producing and broadcasting local and international sport for GOtv and DStv pay TV customers across sub-Saharan Africa. It provides a mix of 35 channels, offering a wide selection of the best local and international sport action across a multitude of disciplines, with a presence in 50 countries across Sub-Saharan Africa.
