Multichoice has officially confirmed its inability to broadcast the 2023 AFCON on Supersport. Rumours have been rife about Supersports’ inability to show the biggest football festival of the African continent for the last two weeks.
In a statement released via Multichoice and Supersport’s various Social Media platforms on Wednesday afternoon, the giant broadcasters confirmed their inability to acquire the rights for the tournament.
“Supersport Channel will not broadcast the Arica Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2023 scheduled for January 13th – February 11th, 2024 because the channel has not secured the rights to broadcast the tournament.
However, AFCON 2023 games will be available through our partner broadcast stations on free-to-air (FTA) Channels.
“Multichoice Africa remains committed to ensuring football fans across Africa continue to enjoy unrivalled access to entertainment and football games available on DSTV and GOTV platforms including the Premier League, Laliga, Serie A and Zambian Super League and many more of football’s most prestigious competitions”, confirmed Supersport.
Many Sub-Saharan Africans depend on Supersport for live football and this announcement will rock them as they were looking forward to watching the AFCON 2023 on Supersport.
