The SABC has announced that it will no longer broadcast PSL matches on their radio stations.
In a statement, SABC reveals that it could not get the broadcast rights for matches on radio.
“The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) would like to advise the South African public that it will not broadcast the Premier Soccer League (PSL) matches on radio. 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 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 SABC will continue to broadcast the PSL matches on their TV platform.
