SuperSport whets appetite of DStv and GOtv Customers ahead of 2018 FIFA World Cup

By Soko Directory Team / March 28, 2018


Probably the biggest sporting event of our time, the World Cup, is once again upon us. With this year’s World Cup comes the promise of an unparalleled level of competition full of an endless thrill for both the players and their fans from all over the world.

In mid-April, the switch will be flipped on a 24-hour World Cup channel (SuperSport 13), allowing fans an appetizer of the 2018 FIFA World Cup – to come two months later from the heart of Russia. Packed with legacy content, highlights, documentaries, FIFA films, classic matches and interviews, the channel will also feature warm-up matches to prepare every football fan for the tournament that traditionally gets the world talking.

From June 14 until the final in Moscow on July 15, MultiChoice will present an unrivaled viewing experience of the 2018 FIFA World Cup for DStv and GOtv customers across all platforms.

Five countries; Senegal, Nigeria, Egypt, Tunisia, and Morocco, will be spearheading the African challenge come June’s World Cup.

All 64 matches of the 2018 FIFA World Cup will be available on all DStv packages as well as on the GOtv Max and Plus packages while GOtv Value customers can view a significant number of games. GOtv Lite customers can also enjoy a select number of fixtures available on free-to-air channels. Viewers can also tune in to Maximo 1, Maximo 2 and Maximo 360 for Portuguese-language coverage.

What’s more, DStv customers will be treated to two 24-hour pop-up channels (SuperSport 13 and 14) dedicated entirely to the tournament with live match commentary options in Pidgin and Swahili. Coverage will be integrated into a multi-platform offering that includes traditional television, on-the-go via the DStv Now app and online at supersport.com. There will also be regular news updates on the popular Blitz channel.

“This is a comprehensive offering that reflects the global reach and excitement on the world’s number one game,” said Gideon Khobane, Chief Executive Officer of SuperSport. “Few events enthrall people in every corner of the earth, but the World Cup does so. We’ll be pulling out all stops to tell the story of the 2018 edition in rich color and language.”
