SuperSport won’t broadcast 2023 AFCON – Multichoice

Multichoice, the parent company of SuperSport, Africa’s biggest pay TV broadcaster, on Wednesday announced that it will not broadcast the 34th edition of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) slated for January 13 to February 11, 2024 in Côte d’Ivoire.

It said the company has been unable to secure the rights to broadcast the tournament on its SuperSport channels.

According to the statement by MultiChoice, the 2023 AFCON games will however be available on its partner broadcast stations on Free to Air (FTA) channels.

“SuperSport Channel will not broadcast the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2023 scheduled for January 13th – February 11th, 2-24, because the channel has not secured the rights to broadcast the tournament.

“However, AFCON 2023 games will be available through our partner broadcast stations on Free to Air (FTA) channels.

“Multichoice Africa remains committed to ensuring football fans across Africa continue to enjoy unrivaled access to entertainment and football games available on DStv and GOtv platforms including, the Premier League, LaLiga, Serie A, Zambian Super League, and many more of football’s most prestigious competitions,” the statement read.

No reason was given for its failure to secure broadcast rights for Africa’s biggest sporting event despite broadcasting the biennial tournament to millions of TV viewers across the world for many years.
