SuperSport scores with Zimbabwe football



SuperSport International (Pty) Ltd and the Zimbabwe Premier Soccer League on Thursday announced a landmark broadcast rights deal.

In terms of the agreement, SuperSport will broadcast league and cup matches played during the remainder of the 2012 football season and during the 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 seasons.

SuperSport will broadcast the fixtures via all platforms, including television, mobile and internet, throughout sub-Saharan Africa and the adjacent islands.

Brandon Foot, the Head of Acquisitions and Legal at SuperSport, was very pleased with the announcement: “We are excited to be breaking new ground with our northern neighbours. There is tremendous future potential in Zimbabwe and we believe that this investment will grow and mutually benefit both parties.”

Twine Phiri, the Chairman of the Zimbabwean PSL, also expressed his delight: “It is wonderful that a world class broadcaster, such as SuperSport, is now our broadcast partner. We received excellent feedback from our stakeholders after SuperSport had broadcast a few of our fixtures in the past. This long-term deal will ensure the sustainability of our league and no doubt be very attractive for sponsors.”

SuperSport now broadcasts local league football played in Angola, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
