Johannesburg – Friday, 13 August 2021- The South African Broadcasting’s (SABC) Sport division SABC Sport, will today at 20h30 broadcast the first match of the new season of Bundesliga on SABC Sport Channel 124 on Openview platform, SABC DTT and via TelkomONE.
The new season kicks off on a high note featuring an opening match between the reigning Bundesliga Champions FC Bayern München against Borussia Mönchengladbach at the Borussia-Park in Mönchengladbach. SABC Sport viewers will be treated to a live studio build-up with Sizwe Mbebe as an anchor and Delron Buckley and Thabiso Mosia as analysts.
SABC Sport acquired the FTA rights for two seasons last year, broadcasting live weekly matches on SABC’s television channel, S3, SABC Sport Channel 124 on Openview platform, SABC DTT and via TelkomONE. The 2021/22 season will feature two live Bundesliga broadcasts, following an additional weekly live match being offered by DFL. This is in line with SABC Sport’s commitment to ensure that more sport content is delivered to the millions of South African sport lovers.
SABC Sport General Manager, Mr. Gary Rathbone stated that “We are really looking forward to another great Bundesliga season on the SABC, especially the fact that we will now be offering two live games every match weekend. And with so many changes in terms of managers, and players moving around, I think we’re in for a thrilling race for the title this season, Bayern facing tough competition from a revitalized Borussia Dortmund while Frankfurt is looking to build on their achievements of last season. It promises to be a great season”
