With the new season just days away, enhancing the football viewing experience for Nigeria football fans has taken a new stride with Propel Sports Africa’s CEO, Basil Kabbani, unveiling ambitious plans that promise a more comprehensive and engaging coverage of football matches.
On a Twitter Space with Mike the Pundit on Monday evening, Propel Sports, the league’s official Tv broadcasters, revealed that the company is currently contracted to broadcast eight out of the ten games played on every matchday. However, negotiations are underway to secure the rights for the remaining two games, aiming to provide fans with full matchday coverage.
“We are continuously working to ensure our viewers can enjoy the best of football action,” said Kabbani.
“Currently, we are contracted to showcase eight games per matchday, and we are actively negotiating to secure the rights for the remaining two games.”
Kabbani also emphasized that the platform guarantees a whopping 304 games out of 380, promising an unprecedented level of football content available to enthusiasts.
“With Propel Sports Africa, fans can access a guaranteed 304 games out of 380, offering an extraordinary football extravaganza,” Kabbani asserted.
Kabbani also addressed the topic of teams recording their games and creating their content. While teams have the freedom to record their matches, live broadcasting rights remain exclusively owned by Propel Sports Africa. He also stressed that unauthorized live broadcasts may result in significant consequences due to the company’s exclusive rights.
“We hold the broadcasting rights, and any unauthorized live broadcasts will have severe repercussions,” Kabbani stated firmly.
Games played at only eight centres will be live on the app. These centres are Lagos, Ibadan, Benin, Uyo, Gombe, Jos, Kano and Katsina.
