Touchdown with NFL broadcasts



America’s most popular sports league, the National Football League, is coming to SuperSport.

SuperSport has partnered with the NFL to broadcast the sport which boasts superstars like Tom Brady, Eli and Peyton Manning and Drew Brees among a galaxy of other stars.

The NFL is made up of 32 teams in two conferences: the American Football Conference (AFC) and the National Football Conference (NFC). The winner of each conference meets to play in the famous Super Bowl at the end of every season.

The NFL season kicks off on September 5, 2013, and SuperSport will broadcast both Monday Night Football and Thursday Night Football with the first game broadcasting on September 9.

SuperSport will cover the AFC Playoffs in January, which includes two Wildcard games, two Divisional playoff games and the AFC Championship game. The Pro Bowl, the NFL’s All-Star Game, will also be broadcast on January 26, 2014.

SuperSport’s coverage of the NFL season concludes with the Super Bowl, the world's biggest annual sporting event, on February 2, 2014.

“We are very happy to bring this to SuperSport viewers,” said Brandon Foot, head of Legal and Acquisitions at SuperSport, which is broadcast on the DStv platform. “This is a new and exciting partnership with the NFL, which ranks as one of the most professional leagues on the planet.”
