No Bafana on SABC
THE SA Football Association (Safa) yesterday confirmed that Bafana Bafana’s Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifier against Seychelles at FNB Stadium tomorrow will not be broacast by the SA Broacasting Corporation (SABC).
“The South African Football Association (Safa) wishes to announce that as matters stand, the upcoming Afcon matches for Bafana Bafana as well as international matches for Banyana Banyana will not be broadcast on any of the SABC platforms,” it said in a statement.
The immediate matches in question are: Bafana Bafana vs Seychelles, Seychelles vs Bafana Bafana as well as Bafana Bafana vs Nigeria.
Safa has rejected an offer from the SABC “outright, and places on record that the offer (to broadcast the matches) is so minuscule that it amounts to an effective no offer”.
