End of PSL, SABC blackout

MultiChoice Group’s SuperSport and the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC)have come to a commercial agreement regarding the broadcasting of Premier Soccer League (PSL)matches.

South African football fans were left disappointed at the start of the month by a ‘blackout’ of all PSL matches on SABC TV and radio as the 2019/20 season commenced.

However, starting this past weekend, all matches were televised live on the free channel to air – including on radio.

We welcome the sports ministers’ intervention and his willingness to facilitate a commercial agreement with the SABC. We are committed to bringing as much access to South African football as is possible to the football-loving public, in a manner that ensures the sustainability of the PSL as one of the top 10 football leagues in the world,” said PSL chairperson Irvin Khoza in joint-statement released.

“I would like to thank all the participants, MultiChoice, the PSL and the SABC for their positive approach which ensures that ordinary South Africans are able to access football in our country,” said Mthethwa.

“We recognise the importance of sport and in this instance football in promoting national cohesion and commend all stakeholders involved.”

A five-year deal was agreed upon which will help financially stabilise both the PSL and the SABC while also satisfying the South African public’s football viewing pleasure.

  1. I’d like to thank you for the efforts you’ve
    put in penning this website. I’m hoping to see
    the same high-grade content from you later on as well.
    In truth, your creative writing abilities has inspired me to get my very own blog now
    😉

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems
    as though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos
    to your weblog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

  3. Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested
    to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a
    youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.
    I know this is entirely off topic but I had to
    share it with someone!

  4. Superb site you have here but I was wanting to know if you knew of any
    message boards that cover the same topics
    talked about here? I’d really love to be a part of community where I can get
    suggestions from other knowledgeable individuals that
    share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know.
    Thanks!

  5. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find
    this topic to be actually something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and extremely broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get
    the hang of it!

  6. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout
    of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
