SuperSport boosts international football offering
With a wealth of first rate football already on offer on the World of Champions, SuperSport has just supplemented the package by acquiring the rights from Pitch International to broadcast the Capital One Cup (formerly the Carling Cup) exclusively and the nPower Championship (formerly the Coca-Cola Championship).
This is a five-season deal that incorporates the entire Sub-Saharan region.
The Capital One Cup is a knockout competition that features the 20 Premier League clubs and 72 clubs from the Football League. The winners qualify for the Uefa Europa League.
The nPower Championship, meanwhile, is played by 72 clubs divided into three divisions with the winners promoted to the Premiership.
