Naicker was speaking at a SuperSport’s Media Roundtable at the MultiChoice Content Showcase at The OutriggerHotel & Resort on the same day SuperSport announced that the 11th edition of the All Africa Games will be broadcast live on SuperSport 9, starting with the opening ceremony on Friday evening.

Naicker spoke to a contingent of African media at a media roundtable discussion facilitated by SuperSport anchor Carol Tshabalala which was also graced by special guest Anthony Baffoe, a former Ghana International footballer and FIFA and CAF General Co-ordinator.

As the biggest contributor in Africa investment in continental sport, he said SuperSport has yielded impressive results.

“In 2006 we flew a crew of 26 people to Abudja to broadcast a football game. Today, we’re proud to say that we have 100% local crews operating our facilities in Nigeria and Ghana,” he said.

He added that SuperSport’s contribution has extended beyond broadcasting, into increasing levels of professionalism in leagues across the continent.

Murray cited the broadcaster’s involvement in local football leagues as a prime example of the way sport has grown on the continent. “We started working with the Nigerian Premier League in 2006 and it’s gone from strength to strength, we’ve been partners with the Kenyan Premier League since 2008 and the Ghanaian League since 2012. Not one Kenyan league game had been broadcast on television for a decade before we partnered with them, and look at how the league is thriving.”

SuperSport recently concluded a deal with the Zambian League which will see league and cup competitions continue to air on SuperSport for the next 5 years.
