SuperSport and Serie A have reached an agreement that will see top-tier Italian league football return to the World of Champions from the start of the upcoming 2018-19 season, which begins on 19.
Speaking after agreeing on the deal, Gideon Khobane, SuperSport Chief Executive, said, “we’ve always prided ourselves on offering viewers the best football from around the world and the return of Serie A to our screens fulfils our promise of an unrivalled football offering.”
Gaetano Miccichè, president of Serie A, was similarly enthused said, “we are very happy with this agreement as it will allow the SuperSport audience to follow all 380 matches of our league.
"We are certain that the passionate supporters from Sub-Saharan Africa will appreciate all the stars from Serie A.”
Founded in 1898, and contested by 20 teams, the league is regarded as one of the best football leagues in the world and it is often clouted as the most tactical national league.
“MultiChoice Ghana is excited to continue bringing customers the best international football. This is part of our ongoing commitment to bring more value to our customers,” says Cecil Sunkwa Mills, General Manager, MultiChoice Ghana.
SuperSport will be the only place to watch all 380 Serie A matches. Games will be broadcast on both DStv and GOtv platforms.
The 2017/18 season was exciting and uncertain until the end thanks to the epic duel between Juventus and Napoli and is a sign of great things to come.
The fight for the remaining UEFA Champions League berth was just as enthralling, the challenge between Lazio and Inter Milan settled only in the final minute of the last day of the campaign with Inter Milan ultimately returning to the elite European club competition.
