MULTICHOICE  MAKES U-TURN, TO AIR 52 AFCON MATCHES

In a dramatic u-turn, Multichoice, the parent company of DStv, has rescinded its earlier announcement that it wouldn’t be broadcasting the 2023 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament holding in Cote d’Ivoire, saying Nigerian football fans will now be able to watch all 52 matches on Supersport pay-TV, GOtv Nigeria has confirmed.

The AFCON game is scheduled to hold between January 13 and February 11, 2024.

Earlier last Wednesday, it announced it wouldn’t be broadcasting on its platform because it failed to secure the broadcasting rights of the continent’s biggest footballing event on its SuperSport channels.

It said, “SuperSport Channel will not broadcast the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2023 scheduled for January 13th – February 11th, 2024, because the channel has not secured the rights to broadcast the tournament.

However, making a U-turn on it’s earlier decision Wednesday via X, @DstvNg announced that it will broadcast all the 52 matches on Supersports.

“🇳🇬No gree for anybody! Watch all 52 matches of the #afcon2023 on @supersports,” it tweeted.

Earlier, the Nigerian Television Authority, on Wednesday, announced it would be transmitting all the 52 AFCON matches.

The Africa’s largest TV network made this known on its X handle, after signing a Memorandum of Understanding with Afro Sports.

It tweeted, “NTA signs Memorandum of Understanding with Afro Sports for transmission of 52 matches of Africa Cup Of Nations in Cote D’ivoire.”
