Connecting with Greatness: DStv takes you Behind the Scenes with Football’s Finest

Published

on

It’s not very often that one gets to be made tea by England football legend Michael Owen.

Yet it was Owen who personally made tea and scones for the production crew who paid him a visit to shoot SuperSport’s FIFA World Cup stories currently broadcast on DStv as a build-up to the 2018 showpiece event in Russia.

Owen’s tea and scones, plus a private tour through his trophy room which includes his 2001 Ballon d’Or trophy, was just reward for the crew after a challenging three months of working around the clock to secure appointments with the six football legends who make up the World Cup stories campaign.

The campaign, dubbed Connect with Greatness, has World Cup greats in Owen, Pele, Sunday Oliseh, Augustine “Jay-Jay” Okocha and Sir Geoff Hurst going down memory lane to iconic World Cup moments that stood out for them. Also included in the campaign is Victor Moses, still paving his path to World Cup greatness with Nigeria.

Once all six stars were confirmed and appointments were made, shooting was scheduled to take just over a month, but ended up taking three months due to issues with Pele’s health.

Pele’s shoot finally took place at his home in Rio de Janeiro where he walked in using a walking frame and asked everyone in the room how they liked his new boots, referring to the walking aid.

Itumeleng Senne, Marketing Manager for SuperSport who was present throughout the shoots, thought she was in a dream.

“This was a surreal moment. When he (Pele) walked in the whole room lit up and we could feel we were in the presence of greatness,” gushed Senne.

While everyone was a little tense, he lightened the mood by telling a joke about his English being so poor, even though he lived in the USA for three years when he played for New York Cosmos.”

From there, the shoot was a light-hearted session filled with laughter, the highlight being the seven minutes it took Pele to recite the line “Watch all 64 matches on SuperSport”.

The crew soon jetted off to London for a date with Victor Moses, a man charged with spearheading Nigeria’s quest for glory in Russia in a few months. Moses, a shy and emotionally reserved player by nature, was shown the video of Ghana’s Asamoah Gyan penalty miss in 2010 which evoked a physical and emotional response from him. Moses felt for both Gyan and Luis Suarez, especially as he had become good friends with Suarez during their time together at Liverpool. 

According to General Manager, MultiChoice Ghana, Cecil Sunkwa Mills “DStv and GOtv viewers, like no one in Ghana, will connect with greatness; all 64 matches will be broadcast live and in High Definition with insight and analysis provided by a panel of local and international footballing greats.”

Published

on

 Eighteen countries across the continent, including Ghana, will compete at the 21st Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia starting on April 4. 18 countries. 18 sport codes. 275 medals.  SuperSport hots up with live broadcast of the 21st Commonwealth Games this April!

The Ghanaian contingent comprises 72 athletes, comprising a hockey team, athletes, swimmers, a shooting team, badminton players, boxers, table tennis players and some para – athletes.

According to Cecil Sunkwa Mill, General Manager, MultiChoice Ghana, “SuperSport, the World of Champions guarantees an exhilarating viewing experience, having secured exclusive pay television broadcast rights for the games across Sub-Saharan Africa.” Whether on the track, field or court, don’t miss world class athletes like Olympic champion Caster Semenya, Blessing Okagbare and the sensational 400m runner Rafiatu Nuhu from Ghana as she stun’s the world with her speed, he added.

SuperSport will have four dedicated DStv channels SS11, SS12, SS13 and SS14 across the packages note our lenses will be focussing on the African atheletes for home fan to closely follow their exploits. Our GOtv subscribers will have two channels (Select 3 and Select 1) and Maximo are all set to share moments of the Commonwealth Games.

Great expectations from Nigeria’s Glasgow star, Okagbare, who will be steel-eyed as she looks to defend her sprint double, while Kenya pins hope on twin-force Helen Obiri (5000m) and Conseslus Kipruto (3000m).

Nijel Amos (800m Botswana) has the odds stacked in his favour, as world record holder David Rudisha skips these Games.  For Botswana this could be big, especially as Babaloki Thebe and Isaac Makwala are poised to battle it out for the 400m gold.

With African medal hopes high for athletics, netball, rugby and swimming, the Opening Ceremony on Wednesday, April 4 (9:55am) promises to set the stage for fireworks on the field. The Closing Ceremony is scheduled for April 15 (10:25 am).
