PSL

No radio broadcast for PSL fixtures this season

Cape Town - In a major blow for soccer fans around the country, the SABC confirmed on Friday evening that they will not broadcast any Absa Premiership fixtures on radio this season.

“This decision follows careful consideration to the SABC’s business operations, and the unsuccessful negotiations with the PSL to secure the broadcast rights for soccer matches on radio,” the broadcaster said in a statement.

“The SABC and PSL could not reach a consensus with regards to the terms of the contract, and this has unfortunately led to the SABC not being able to close the deal with PSL.”

The public broadcaster said the matches would, however, still be aired on its television stations.

The 2018/19 Absa Premiership season starts on Saturday, August 4.
