DStv and GOtv Promise Football Lovers An Exciting Broadcast Ahead Of New Season

Published

on

SuperSport is the
home of world’s top leagues in the 2020/21 football season, starting
this September on DStv and GOtv, with an unmatched offering of the
beautiful game from the best players in the world, all in HD!

As
the 2019/20 season draws to a close, interest in the upcoming season is
ramping up. If the hype of the previous season – with Liverpool’s
momentous triumph –  is any indication, the looming season is bound to
be captivating.  And with SuperSport’s comprehensive coverage of the
most loved football leagues, with hundreds of games from Premier League, La Liga (with exclusive English commentary) and Serie A – on the new dedicated thematic channels – there’s no need to look any further.

In
addition to the big three leagues, SuperSport will also be bringing
viewers unprecedented coverage which includes the Euro 2020
Championship, UEFA Euro 2020 Qualifiers, European qualifiers for the
2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA
Nations League   – it’s set to be a year-round football feast!

The
breadth and depth of the coverage, will, as usual include build-ups
with respected analysts as well as language options for commentary
including Pidgin, Swahili and Portuguese – cementing SuperSport as the
unrivalled football destination of choice for viewers across Africa.

Cecil
Sunkwa Mills, General Manager of MultiChoice Ghana says of the upcoming
season: “Building on the euphoria of the season that just concluded, we
are excited to deliver world-class football to fans as we always do.
There’s a lot to look forward to and we are proud to provide a platform
for customers to experience the significant moments of the game at high
quality.”

Football
fans on the continent were given a preview of the ‘new normal’ of live
football in the last part of the 2019/20 season as a result of the
worldwide pandemic, changing the dynamic of how the game is broadcast.
Other changes for this season also include team and leadership
adjustments:

New start dates

The
dates for the season to begin usually arrive in August, but the
suspension and late finish due to world events, means all three of Premier League, La Liga and Serie A  will kick-off their new campaigns in September: the 12th for England and Spain, and the 19th for Italy. All three leagues are scheduled to wrap up on 23 May 2020.

New teams

In the Premier League,
the trio of Leeds United, West Bromwich Albion and Fulham will be the
‘new boys’ after securing promotion at the end of last season. West Brom
and Fulham have been regular competitors in recent Premier League
seasons, but the return of Leeds is big news: the Whites are truly one
of the biggest clubs in England and a first showing in the top flight
since 2003-04 adds to the excitement and intrigue for 2020-21.

In Italy, Benevento and Crotone secured direct promotion to Serie A, with both set to appear in the top flight for just the second time in their histories, while La Liga sees
Cadiz and Huesca as new members of the elite league, with the former
promoted to the top tier for the first time in a decade.

New managers

The arrival of the legendary Marcelo Bielsa, the man at the helm of Leeds United, adds to the managerial spice in the Premier League,
with the Argentine revered as the “coach’s coach” by the likes of Pep
Guardiola. His tactical nous will be put to the test by the likes of
Guardiola, Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp, Carlo Ancelotti and others in a
stacked line-up of brilliant managers.

Meanwhile, Italy will have the fascinating scenario of rookie manager Andrea Pirlo in charge of Serie A champions
Juventus – if the former midfielder is half as good a coach as he was a
player, then the Bianconeri will be well on their way to a 10th straight title.

In La Liga,
as far as new managers are concerned, it’s all about who will be in
charge of Barcelona. Quique Setien’s tenure ended in disgrace with the
team’s 8-2 annihilation at the hands of Bayern Munich in the UEFA
Champions League, and Ronald Koeman (a Barca club legend) has been
confirmed to take over at the Camp Nou.

New players

The
transfer market hasn’t really clicked into top gear just yet, but there
has already been some major signings completed. Chelsea have done
amazing work by securing the services of Moroccan winger Hakim Ziyech
and German striker Timo Werner, two signings which could transform them
into potential Premier League title contenders.

The biggest signings into La Liga include
Miralem Pjanic to Barcelona (as part of a deal which saw Arthur head in
the opposite direction to Juventus) and Suso swapping Milan for Sevilla
(and he’s already impressed for the club in the UEFA Europa League),
while Serie A has
seen the arrival of two rising African stars: Achraf Hamiki from Real
Madrid to Internazionale, and Victor Osimhen from Lille to Napoli.

As
we build towards the eagerly-anticipated 2020-21 season – having only
just seen the back of 2019-20! – don’t miss everything new coming
to the Premier LeagueLa Liga and Serie A which will excite SuperSport viewers for the New Football Season!
