By Modupe Gbadeyanka

As part of its determination to bring the best sport content to its subscribers, leading pay-TV operator in Nigeria, StarTimes, has obtained exclusive broadcasting rights to air UEFA Europa League matches in Sub-Saharan Africa until 2021.

With this, StarTimes will broadcast UEFA Europa League games in all Sub-Saharan Africa except South Africa, Lesotho and Swaziland.

The firm has also been awarded exclusive rights for English, Portuguese and local languages in English and Portuguese speaking areas.

A statement issued by the company disclosed that the broadcast, which will begin on September 20, 2018, will see football fans enjoy matches between the best European clubs.

Brand and Marketing Director of StarTimes, Mr Qasim Elegbede, stated that, “We are very happy to bring UEFA Europa League to our subscribers. This summer FIFA World Cup was a success and fans really appreciated that we brought them ICC exclusive and live right after. We then thought that they would be delighted to watch another European club competition on StarTimes.

“We are working hard to bring the best sport content to our subscribers.

“This season will be intense for football fans with Bundesliga, French Ligue 1, FIFA Club World Cup, French & Italian Cups and now UEFA Europa League.”
