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”.
