Nigerian football lovers will not be able to watch their team at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations on SuperSport.
This is because they have been unable to secure rights for the tournament.
Multichoice confirmed this development in a statement on Wednesday.
However, the competition will be available on Free To Air (FTA) Channels.
“SuperSport Channel will not broadcast the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2023 scheduled for January 13th – February 11th, 2024, because the channel has not secured the rights to broadcast the tournament,” the statement said.
“However, AFCON 2023 games will be available through our partner broadcast stations on Free to Air (FTA) channels.
“Multichoice Africa remains committed to ensuring football fans across Africa continue to enjoy unrivalled access to entertainment and football games available on DStv and GOtv platforms including, the Premier League, LaLiga, Serie A, Zambian Super League and many more of football’s most prestigious competitions,” the statement read.
The 2023 AFCON is scheduled for January 13th – February 11th, 2024.
Ivory Coast are the host nation for the 2023 AFCON.
