Don't miss Messi and Neymar head to head in Copa America.
Despite the Champions League coming to an end with Barcelona 3-1 victory against The Old Lady, the season of football never ends on SuperSport, Your World of Champions.
On Thursda,y 11 June, South America’s finest footballers will kick up a major storm as they battle it out for continental glory in the 44th edition of the Copa America.
The 11 June to 4 July tournament, hosted by Chile, will be broadcast exclusively live and in HD on SuperSport.
“South America continues to be the biggest exporter of football talent to the world and the Copa America is the ground where star players like Neymar, Sergio Aguero, Alexis Sanchez, Edinson Cavani, Phillipe Coutinho and others announce themselves before moving on to some of the biggest clubs across the world. We are ecstatic at being able to bring such a prestigious tournament to our viewers,” said a beaming Brandon Foot, Acting Chief Executive of SuperSport.
Lionel Messi and Neymar have recently formed football’s most fearsome strike partnership and have proved unstoppable, scoring more than 90 goals between them this season.
Having worked so well for the common cause of club glory, Argentina’s Messi and Brazil’s Neymar now find themselves at opposite ends in the quest for continental supremacy. Sadly, the in-form Luis Suarez’s continued international ban for biting at the World Cup means he’s not available for selection for Uruguay.
All Copa America matches will be live on SS3 HD. Kickoff times range from 21:00 CAT, 23:00 CAT, 23:30 CAT and 01.30 CAT.
“Given the live timings, we’ll also be scheduling a number of repeats at prime times throughout the next day,” explained Docky Dockrat, SuperSport’s Head of Programming, ensuring viewers need not miss a minute of the action.
SuperSport has also acquired rights to most of the off-season club friendly tournaments, including the Audi Cup which features Real Madrid, Roma and Manchester City as well as a host of international friendlies.
