Sudden SuperSport cancellation of televising CAF games means a total of 6 competitions will be affected. Regular SuperSport CAF live game cast include Champions League, Confederation Cup and AFCON.
Yesterday 8th October 2019 CAF revealed that it had cancelled the television and marketing deal, worth $1b, with Lagardere.
Lagarde was found guilty to have breached CAF competition rules. SuperSport televise CAF games through the license rights acquired from Lagarde. This effectively means the following CAF competitions will never be shown on SuperSport live stream:
- Total Under-23 Africa Cup of Nations
- 2021 AFCON qualifiers
- Total CAF Confederation Cup
- Total CAF Champions League
- Total CAF Super Cup
