Africa’s premier basketball show on SuperSport


On 05 November 2010, Supersport issued the following: “Basketball Africa” is a 30-minute show that showcases basketball on the African continent. The focus of the show is all basketball, whether it’s high school development, national leagues or kids in the street playing one-on-one ball.

Basketball is on a steady upward curve in Africa with countries like Angola, Nigeria and South Africa being just a few of the countries that now have well established leagues on the continent.

The show brings you highlights, player profiles and interviews from major tournaments such as the Fiba Africa Championships, and the recently concluded 2010 Fiba World Championships held in Tunisia where the US won its 4th title.

SuperSport (SS Maximo) will ensure that basketball on the African continent has a platform where the masses can access it.
