It is with regret that I announce that SuperSport has made the difficult decision to terminate the contract with the League Management Company (LMC) for the Nigerian Premier League (NPL), following a breach of the Licence Agreement entered into by the parties.
The incredibly difficult decision to cancel the contract was done after very careful consideration. The team spent many hours deliberating, and is aware of the impact this decision may have on our customers who rely on DStv and GOtv for coverage of Nigerian football.
A formal notice of cancellation of the contract has been issued to the LMC, and SuperSport isnow in the process of putting all the necessary procedures and steps in place to manage ourexit from this league. The new reality is being reviewed, and we will in due course advise on any impact on SuperSport operations.
