SABC secures broadcast rights for CAF inter-club competitions

The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) has secured TV and radio rights to broadcast the Confederation of African Football (CAF) inter-club competitions.

South African football fans will get to watch both the CAF Champions League and CAF Confederation Cup matches involving South African teams, because of the SABC’s rights to broadcast the group stage matches, for both competitions.

It means that almost every household will have access to the matches, including those without access to DStv.

These matches will involve Mamelodi Sundowns, AmaZulu in the CAF Champions League and Orlando Pirates in the CAF Confederation Cup.

The SABC made the announcement on Wednesday night on Metro FM’s Ultimate Sports Show, with Thomas Mlambo.

However, at this stage, the SABC confirmed that it will only cover the home matches involving the three teams – Sundowns, AmaZulu and Pirates.

Midweek matches will be screened on SABC Sport channel 124 while almost all weekend games will be on the public broadcaster’s free-to-air channels.
