NTA to broadcast AFCON matches

The Nigerian Television Authority, on Wednesday, announced it would be transmitting all the 52 African Cup of Nations holding between January 13 and February 11 2024 in Ivory Coast.

The Africa’s largest TV network made this known on its X handle, after signing a Memorandum of Understanding with Afro Sports.

It tweeted, “NTA signs Memorandum of Understanding with Afro Sports for transmission of 52 matches of Africa Cup Of Nations in Cote D’ivoire.”

Earlier, Multichoice, the parent company of DStv, last Wednesday, said the upcoming African Cup of Nations tournament would not be broadcasted on its platform.

It said the satellite failed to secure the broadcasting rights to broadcast the continent’s biggest footballing event on its SuperSport channels.
