Two 24-hour channels for Euro 2012
As the gathering of Europe’s elite draws nearer for the 14th edition of the Uefa European Football Championships, Africa’s premier sports broadcaster, SuperSport, is preparing to roll out two 24-hour channels dedicated to the championships.
SuperSport will broadcast all 31 games of Uefa Euro 2012™ across Sub-Saharan Africa in English and Portuguese on SuperSport High Definition 3 and SuperSport 3, the two 24-hour channels.
Netherlands’ Euro 1980 captain, Ruud Krol, and England’s Euro 1988 left winger, John Barnes, will form part of SuperSport’s world class analysts who also include Kalusha Bwalya, Gavin Hunt, Jomo Sono, Ernst Middendorp, Daniel Amokachi and Efan Ekoku alongside resident analysts Gary Bailey, Andre Arendse, Shaun Bartlett and Bradley Carnell.
The proven tactical acumen of the panel of specialists will also be used on Master Plan, a show dedicated to understanding the tactics to be employed by the 16 competing nations.
There’s also a second magazine show, Euro Zone. This will take the form of a round-table debate that will allow Euro fans with close ties to the participating nations, like former England striker Terry Paine, and others, the opportunity to discuss the performances of the nations they are affiliated to.
Through social media platforms, viewers will also get their opportunity on Euro Zone to engage with like-minded people with regard to the performances of their teams.
