SuperSport returns to African football with money for Champions League final rights

The qualification of South African club Kaizer Chiefs to the CAF Champions League final has brought renewed interest in the competition from sub-Saharan Africa after years of dominance by North African clubs, and Saturday’s final will now be on television screens due to the involvement of Chiefs. SuperSport announced that it has acquired the rights to broadcast the match that will take place in Casablanca in countries such as South Africa and Nigeria, citing the boost in interest outside of North Africa for the match. Inside World Football has quotes from the Pan-African television station as well as CAF president Patrice Motsepe regarding interest in the broadcasting of CAF competitions.
