With 2014 FIFA World Cup™ fever high, SuperSport has pulled out all the stops to make sure that DStv Subscribers are transported to Brazil, straight from their couch and in the company of superstars like Ryan Giggs!

“Our over-arching philosophy is to convey the entire Brazil experience,” said Alvin Naicker, SuperSport’s head of production. “We’ll be bringing Brazil to the fans, hence our payoff line ‘We are Brazil.’ And we’ll go beyond the football, bringing viewers the feel, culture and rhythms that surround the World Cup.”

Fans can enjoy every minute of every game live on two dedicated Supersport Channels or live streaming on SuperSport.com and the SuperSport.com Apps.

While the games are being played at the best times in Brazil, unfortunately this means that some of the times will be in the wee hours in Africa. To ensure that Football fans don’t miss a game, SuperSport and DStv Catch Up will be making highlights, full games as well as the four magazine shows that underpin SuperSport’s major offering available to Premium Subscribers.

These will be available as follows:
