April 9, 2021
All 64 matches of the FIFA World Cup 2022, to be held in Qatar, will be broadcast live on SuperSport after the broadcaster concluded a broadcast deal with FIFA.
SuperSport’s pay TV broadcast rights extend to all platforms across sub-Saharan Africa. HD coverage will be across multiple channels with expert analysis, in-depth digital offerings, supplementary programming and much more in keeping with the grand scale of the event.
To be contested by 32 teams, including champions France, the World Cup will be held for the first time from November 21st to December 18th, and the first to be held in one city.
“This is fantastic news, especially after the success of the 2018 tournament, a fitting celebration of the beautiful game,” said Marc Jury, Chief Executive of SuperSport. “The FIFA World Cup always excites fans and the kick-off times will be most convenient for our viewers, given friendly broadcast time-zones.”
