What’s more, football lovers on DStv and GOtv can look forward to the return of the UEFA Europa League – the second most important trophy in Europe, after the UEFA Champions League – on their Channel of Champions. The Europa League and FA Cup will be exclusive to SuperSport adding to the best football viewing experience across all the continent. Football fans will also be able to follow comprehensive coverage of the most loved football leagues with hundreds of games The UEFA Champions League (UCL), UEFA Nations League (UNL) and European qualifiers for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Nancy Matimu, the MD of MultiChoice Kenya said: “Building on the euphoria of and exciting 20/21 season and the Olympics tournament, we are excited to deliver world-class football to football fans once again, whether they are watching on television or on digital platforms. This season we are delivering even more value to our DStv and GOtv customers. We listened and have secured the Europa League as a Pay TV exclusive offering. In so doing we further entrench our promise as the best football watching experience in Kenya.”
The season kicks off with Manchester City and Leicester City when they stage for the Community Shield match on Saturday 7 August. La Liga and Serie A kick-off on Aug 13. Atletico Madrid will start as favourites to hold off the challenge offered by Real Madrid and Barcelona, but an exciting Sevilla side could be even more prominent in the title challenge, while the high turnover of coaches in Serie A makes their new season entirely unpredictable! Internazionale are the reigning champions, but Juventus, Milan, Napoli, Lazio and a Roma side now managed by Jose Mourinho will all be gunning for the Scudetto in 2021-22.
This will then be followed in quick succession by the Premier League kicking off on 14 August 2021. Manchester City and Pep Guardiola will be looking to continue their dominance but are likely to face a renewed challenge from Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United, while England’s famed and beloved FA Cup remains an exclusive for SuperSport. The 2021–22 Premier League will be the 30th season of the Premier League, the top English professional league for association football clubs since its establishment in 1992. The much-awaited UEFA Europa league kicks off on 16 September 2021 and will run until 18 May 2022.
