News reaching the Siya crew is that Bafana Bafana’s international friendly against Swaziland this evening will not be broadcast live, despite official confirmation from the South African Football Association.

Bafana V Swaziland clash to be broadcast live 

Earlier the crew received confirmation from the South African football mother-body that Bafana’s friendly against Sihlangu Semnikati would be televised on the national broadcaster, the SABC.

“Tonight’s international friendly between Bafana and Swaziland will be broadcast live on SABC,” said SAFA’s Communication Head, Dominic Chimhavi earlier today.  

Now after further investigation, the crew can confirm that the match will not air on South African television screen as SWAZI TV does not have the outside broadcast facility and capacity to provide a quality acceptable satellite feed to broadcast the match.

SAFA’s Communication Head, Dominic Chimhavi confirmed this with the crew.

“It’s unfortunate that the match will not be televised. SAFA did everything in its power to deliver the Bafana Bafana match to the South African public,” he said.

“It’s a case of broadcasting infrastructure, whereby our neighbours are unable to broadcast the match. We still urge South Africans to rally behind the boys as we build-up to our clash against rivals Nigeria on Sunday,” added Chimhavi.
