From (L-R) Charles Hamya GM MultiChoice, John Kiryowa Sales Manager DStv, Phoebe Nakabazzi DStv Marketing Manager and Tina Wamala PR Manager officially unveil the Euro 2016 tournament at SuperSport

DStv customers brace themselves for the Euro 2016 tournament.

DStv customers are in for a treat come 10 June 2016 now that the countdown of the Euro 2016 tournament has officially begun. DStv customers will be taken on a whirlwind television-viewing journey to France to witness Europe’s greatest footballing nations battle as they tussle it out for the quadrennial Uefa Euro 2016 championship title. The question looming is, can Spain make it twice in a row and be declared European champions again?

Speaking at the press launch at Riders Bar, Phoebe Nakabazzi, DStv Uganda marketing manager, said: “If you thought the wealth of first rate football was wrapping up on the World of Champions, you are wrong. SuperSport will exclusively broadcast all 51 games played by the 24 teams in France throughout the tournament. The best part of it is that our DStv Compact customers will also be in on the action, as the tournament will also be broadcast on the package. 

The Euro 2016 matches will be available on SuperSport 3 (223) and SuperSport 4 (204) and on SuperSport 11 (211) and SuperSport 12 (212) for DStv Compact customers.

This will be the third time that France hosts the tournament, after the inaugural tournament in 1960 and the 1984 finals. The French team has won the European Championship twice: in 1984 and 2000. Spain is the tournament’s defending champions, after winning in 2012.

Nakabazzi added: “To make this tournament even more exciting for fans, we have launched a promotion where customers will win viewing parties courtesy of DStv for either new acquisitions or renewal of their subscription on DStv Compact and above for two months or longer this period. The viewing parties will give fans a chance to host 19 of their friends at their homes, with the up and coming star, Winnie Nwagi, making a special appearance at all the parties. Up to six viewing parties will be held throughout the tournament with other smaller prizes up for grabs for runner’s ups and DStv will cover all the costs!”

Charles Hamya, general manager, boasted: “It is only on SuperSport that you can truly see the greatest of soccer players. SuperSport is the home of champions and there is no tournament that is as exciting as this one. The matches will be at favourable times during the day, that won’t be an inconvenience to our customers. We are delighted that once again DStv will lead the way in offering Ugandan audiences comprehensive live football action from the Euro tournament! New customers still have a chance to exploit our hardware subsidy of UGX 130 000 full kit including one month on Compact and enjoy this tournament.”
