Dude,where's my AFCON CUP?

Posted by Paralyzer in broadcast

Is it me or is this years AFCON Cup starting off in Angola on Sunday night not getting any love from our broadcasters? There are no promos on Supersport nor SABC promoting the games or viewing times.Then,there are rumours that SABC still has not secured broadcast rights for the tournament whilst Supersport has secured the rights for the continent except for South Africa.Now is it possible that come sunday night we are not going to see the opening of Africa's Primier football tournament ...yep anything is possible, to qoute the guys from blood diamond "T.I.A:this is Africa".

I hope the rights issue is sorted out before kickoff on sunday cause although South Africa has not qualified this year for AFCON we are still hosting the World Cup in June. Some of the teams who will be participating in the AFCON have qualified for the WC, so if these guys do well at Angola it will make it easier for the SA audiance to identify with them come June.Aside from that its going to be top pedigree soccer that no soccer lover would like to miss out on.

Aside from that ,the tournament will be happening within our own region?How can we miss out on that. Come now guys ,lets not prove the negative stereotypes about Africa right.What will this say about our broadcasters that we can organise rights for the euro soccer and the world cup in time but fail dismaily when it comes to our own local tournament ? T.I.A someone?I hope not.
