#UnwrapDStvFootball and More Festive Sport

Watch your favorite teams all season long and go deep with sports - watch every goal, home run and hole in one – at home and on the go – with SuperSport’s festive sports season viewing. Enjoy the World of Champions’ football offering that will deliver the five rounds of the Premier League in the space of 18 days; La Liga closing out the year with club football’s biggest blockbuster fixture, Real Madrid against Barcelona and the continent’s locally-based players putting themselves out there in the fifth edition of the African Nations Championship (CHAN).

Fresh off breaking Arsenal’s record of 14 consecutive Premier League wins, set 14 years ago, City have a chance of stretching this to 19 matches before the year is over. There is also a big one to look forward to with Arsen Wenger’s Gunners facing off with Liverpool at Emirates Stadium on 22 December at 21:45 CAT.

La Liga table-toppers Barcelona lead Real Madrid by eight points and could stretch this lead to 11 by the end of December 23 with victory over their arch-nemesis in the first Clasico of the season, a margin that could effectively end Madrid’s title defence if past seasons are anything to go by.

Players plying their trade on the continent will have a golden chance to put themselves in the “shop window” in the fifth edition of CHAN. The tournament’s January staging coincides with the transfer window, offering players an ideal opportunity to land moves to new clubs which are in the market for reinforcements for the second half of the season.
