SAFA Meets With SABC Over Broadcast Situation

SAFA and SABC in meetings to deal with broadcasting issues

By Soccer Laduma - Aug 08, 2018 04:05 PM

The Siya crew has been notified that the South African Football Association (SAFA) has been in a meeting with the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC).  

It was recently published that the SABC’s current financial woes are the threating the broadcasting of all national team fixtures with potential blackouts looming. Now Siya sources close to the FA have revealed that both the organisations are in meetings to try and resolve the matter.

“Meetings have been held and are continuous,” said a source.

"The SABC are the main broadcast holders to televise the games of the national teams but with their current financial situation, their operational capacity is compromised and thus both parties want to find a way forward,” added the source.   

The SABC currently own the broadcasting rights to broadcast Bafana Bafana‚ Banyana Banyana ‚and SAB League National Championship as well as the junior national team and ABC Motsepe League fixtures. 

Recently, SAFA held an event to celebrate the qualification of various national teams into a major international tournament as part of Vision 2022.  Bafana Bafana in the meantime are earmarked to play their 2019 African Nations Cup qualifying matches against Libya in September and Seychelles in October. 

The crew will continue to monitor the situation closely.

No Baba, they are feeding us lies. There is no such a thing instead they want us to pay for services they render. They see that most people can affard to pay OVHD, DSTV and so on now they want to cash on that. If that is the case they must revise their salaries and fund that before coming to us and maybe retrench some of their staff as other companies do around the country

In Mzantsi we are caused to suffer internally by SAFA, SABC should consider poor people before making drastic decisions

Dstv is expensive to the majority of soccer enthusiasts. Please come up with something constructive including all PSL matches. Soccer was and is still the only entertaining sport for the people of South Africa.
