Pay-TV channel SuperSport have confirmed that they will show the CAF Champions League final between Kaizer Chiefs and AL Ahly on Saturday (21:00).
CAF President Dr Patrice Motsepe revealed this past weekend that they were in negotiations with various broadcasters to show the match in as many countries as possible.
SuperSport chief executive Marc Jury has since confirmed on their website that the match will be broadcast live on Channel 202 in South Africa, channel 205 in Nigeria and on channel 225 on the rest of the continent.
“Games on the continent don’t get bigger than this and we are thrilled to showcase Africa’s best in a match of this magnitude. Two of Africa’s super clubs in a major final will no doubt boost fans in these challenging times,” said Jury.
Chiefs will be competing in their first Champions League final against defending nine-time champions Al Ahly led by South African coach Pitso Mosimane.
The final will take place at Stade Mohamed V Stadium in Morocco on Saturday, 17 July at 21:00.
