Dar es Salaam. DStv is geared to deliver the most action-packed football from the best players in the world when the new, already momentous season kicks off in a few days to come.

Interest in the upcoming European football season is also ramping up, on account of such developments as Cristiano Ronaldo signing to play for the Italian club Juventus – and all eyes are now shifting to the Italian champions and a revitalized Serie-A.

As one of the world’s most popular and expensive players, Ronaldo will be looking to make his mark on the Italian footballing scene, thus further building his claim as one of the world’s greatest players of all time.

 “SuperSport is the home of football, and we are equally happy that we can now offer our subscribers the English Premier League, the Italian Serie-A and the Spanish La Liga – thus enabling Tanzanian football fans to follow all the 760 matches of the leagues.

“This is part of our ongoing commitment to bring more value to our customers,” said Ronald Shelukindo, the MultiChoice-Tanzania operations manager.

In addition to the news of the Serie-A return, DStv will also enhance its offering by more live football from other leagues to the DStv-Bomba and Family bouquets.

DStv-Bomba customers will now have access to over 1,200 live games per season, with two games each from the English Premier League, 3 games form Serie-A and all La Liga games.

Available on DStv platforms, the SuperSport channels are the only place to watch comprehensive coverage of the most loved football leagues, with hundreds of games from La Liga, Serie-A, UEFA Champions League – as well as this season’s debut of the UEFA Nations League.

“We always attempt to give our customers value for their money by projecting exciting content on their screens. This is how we start,” said the MultiChoice-Tanzania marketing manager, Alpha Mria.

The Supersport Swahili commentators will also be doing their job during the English Premier League this season.

The launch was attended by some of football legends in Tanzania, including famous national team players of the past, local DStv ambassadors – such as Mohamed ‘Adoplh’ Rishard, AkidaMakunda, Mohmed Hussein and Boniface Pawasa – as well as other stakeholders who are generally considered ‘essential’ in the market.
