Agreement Reached To Show PSL Football On SABC

Premier Soccer League action will once again be shown on SABC after an agreement between the two parties had been reached. 

The opening two rounds of the Absa Premiership and the MTN8 quarter-finals were not shown on the public broadcaster.

However, an agreement was announced in a joint statement with Department of Sports and Recreation, SuperSport and the SABC.

The statement read:
 
The Minister of Sports‚ Arts and Culture‚ Minister Nathi Mthethwa‚ in consultation with the Minister of Communication and Digital Technologies‚ the Honourable Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams‚ is pleased to announce that MultiChoice’s SuperSport has concluded an agreement on commercial terms with the South African Broadcasting Corporation.
 
“This will allow the SABC to broadcast Premier Soccer League matches on television. The deal was announced following constructive negotiations between the parties facilitated by Minister Mthethwa.
 
“The agreement between SuperSport and the SABC is for five years and recognises the need to ensure the sustainability of the PSL.”
 
“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‚” Mthethwa was quoted as saying.
 
“We recognise the importance of sport and in this instance football in promoting national cohesion and commend all stakeholders involved.”
 
“We welcome the sports ministers’ intervention and his willingness to facilitate a commercial agreement with the SABC‚” PSL chairman Irvin Khoza said.
 
“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.”
