Exciting news for African football fans as StarTimes announces its exclusive broadcasting rights for the upcoming African Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2023.
The tournament, hosted in Ivory Coast, will run from January 13 to February 11, 2024. StarTimes will showcase all 52 matches of the event across its various platforms in Africa.
This development comes as a treat for sports enthusiasts, especially with the local StarTimes UPL season pausing for a four-week break.
Aldrine Nsubuga, StarTimes' Vice President, expressed his enthusiasm, "We're thrilled to bring AFCON 2023 to our viewers.”
“It's more than just broadcasting matches; it's about celebrating African football's spirit and skill. We're committed to offering top-notch sports entertainment, and AFCON is a testament to that commitment."
StarTimes goes the extra mile in ensuring accessibility for all Ugandans, offering live broadcasts of the matches on Sports Premium and Sports Life channels.
Additionally, Luganda commentary will be available on Sanyuka Prime. The coverage extends to various subscription packages, including the affordable Copa bouquet for antenna users and the Special bouquet for satellite subscribers.
Moreover, these channels will also be accessible via the StarTimes ON mobile streaming app. This initiative underlines StarTimes' dedication to promoting African sports.
By acquiring the rights to AFCON 2023 and other CAF events, StarTimes not only aims to deliver exciting football action but also to foster a sense of unity and pride among the African audience.
