Nigeria: GOtv, SuperSport Bring AFCON Games


Africa is a continent united in its culture, diversity, identity and history. But come 19th January 2013, it’s every country for itself in the battle to see whose flag will fly highest. The Africa Cup of Nations is here.

Action from the Africa Cup of Nations will be available to GOtv subscribers who will see 28 live games on SuperSport Select; and GOtv Plus subscribers who will see all 32 games live – 28 on SuperSport Select and four on SuperSport Blitz.

General Manager, GOtv Nigeria, Mrs. Elizabeth Amkpa, says that the Africa Cup of Nations is another example of the competitive and exclusive content that GOtv brings viewers.

“We’ve brought our subscribers the Big Brother Africa Stargame; the 2012 Channel O Awards live; great international and local football, and now, Africa’s top football tournament.”

Mrs. Amkpa says that not only will GOtv and GOtv Plus subscribers see live games, but there’ll be build-up commentary, post-match wrap ups and in-depth analysis of every game.

“We are extremely happy to offer our subscribers exclusive access from the tournament by giving them insights into the different teams, and to also showcase Africa’s football stars.”

SuperSport’s renowned team of international experts will include Ruud Gullit, Sunday Oliseh, Sammy Kuffour, Kalusha Bwalya and Abedi Pele.

With much-loved anchors such as Robert Marawa, Charles Anzodo, Carol Tshabalala and Thomas Mlambo, the Africa Cup of Nations is the perfect start for fans of African football.
