Local DStv subscribers will be able to watch the Flames’ Cosafa Cup games as they will be beamed live on SuperSport.
According to MultiChoice Malawi sales and marketing manager Chimwemwe Nyirenda, all the games will be beamed on SuperSport 4 and 9.
The regional showcase rolls into life tomorrow in South Africa and will run up to July 9. Currently all DStv customers are enjoying the 2017 Fifa Confederation Cup live from Russia.
Flames are in Group A alongside Tanzania’s Taifa Stars, Angola’s Negras Palancas and Club M of Mauritius. Their first game is against the Taifa Stars tomorrow.
Group B has Zimbabwe, Madagascar, Seychelles and Mozambique. Namibia, Lesotho, Botswana, Zambia, South Africa and Swaziland will join the tournaments at quarter-final courtesy of their better Fifa world rankings.
“SuperSport 9 will beam live the Flames’ opening match against Tanzania from 2.30pm. We are bringing this tournament on affordable packages. All games will also be live on GOtv Plus,” he said.
If Flames will top the group they will face South Africa’s Bafana Bafana in the quarter-finals on July 2.
“Once again we are bringing the Cosafa Castle Cup direct to the homes of soccer mad Malawians who will follow every game live from South Africa in the comfort of their homes.
“Just recently we donated the new DStv PVR Explora decoder to the Flames coach Ronny van Geneugden so that we can be monitoring Flames players who are in the South African Premier League and recording important games like the Cosafa Castle games . This tournament will give him the best opportunity to record all Flames games on SuperSport 9 and use them for future tactical analysis and references,” added Nyirenda.
Patrick Tsonga, who runs Pa Sitting Room pub in Chitawira Township, Blantyre, said he is happy that his customers will be able to watch the events as they unfold in South Africa. n
