SuperSport Extends Premier League Partnership, Renews UEFA Rights

By Soko Directory Team / November 17, 2020 | 7:57 am




SuperSport International has announced the renewal of its broadcast relationship with the Premier League in a deal for a further three seasons.

The deal ensures that SuperSport will be an official broadcaster of the Premier League until 2025, a move that will see subscribers get limitless action in the field.

“These are challenging times for everyone, so to secure these rights is most gratifying,” said Calvo Mawela, MultiChoice Group Chief Executive. “We have been a proud partner of the Premier League since its inception.

“The Premier League stirs the passions of the many football followers throughout Africa on a weekly basis, consistently delivering competitive fixtures and unpredictable results. We are pleased to continue to provide this world-class content to our subscribers.”

In addition, Supersport also announced that #HomeofFootball has renewed its broadcast contract with UEFA for a further three years, ensuring a wealth of UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League action, plus an all-new competition, the UEFA Europa Conference League.

SuperSport currently holds rights to the UEFA Europa League in South Africa, the new deal extends to the entire territory of Sub-Saharan Africa and apply to all distribution platforms, including television, internet, and mobile.

The rights include the new UEFA Europa Conference League, a fresh 32-team competition, and the UEFA Youth League, where the stars of the future showcase their skills.

“UEFA football competitions showcase the champion footballers of Europe, never failing to produce excitement and drama and we look forward to broadcasting these events in the years to come,” said Mawela.

The Premier League has long been arguably the best sporting league in the world and continues to offer unrivaled thrills and excitement. Just this season, 245 goals have been scored in just 78 matches – an average of 3.14 per match – and at the time of writing the top six places are covered by just three points.

While the past few years have been dominated by Manchester City and Liverpool, this season’s title race looks to be wide open and a surprise championship win for teams such as Tottenham Hotspur or Leicester City is not far-fetched.

In addition, the likes of Aston Villa, Everton, and Southampton have stepped up their games, Chelsea are looking ominous – especially now that Moroccan Hakim Ziyech is up and running – while it’s only a matter of time before the quality in the squads of Manchester United and Arsenal shines through.
