In another technology first for SuperSport, a host of local languages will supplement standard English commentary for a number of international football properties.
The initiative is now available for select Premier League, Serie A, LaLiga, UEFA Champions League, Europa and other international matches.
Pidgin, Swahili and Amharic remain on offer, ensuring a range of options for SuperSport viewers across the continent.
The remote commentary project is a continuation from the recent FIFA World Cup where SuperSport introduced Twi, Luganda and Swahili into broadcasts, a result of constantly striving to deliver the best viewing experience for fans.
The focus now is that these languages are going to be widely available on most European league football on a weekly basis, with strong emphasis on the English Premier League.
Language selections will vary per region, and every effort will be made to ensure the key fixtures are given multi-language options under the new plan.
Vernacular commentary will be done remotely from Ghana, Tanzania, Nigeria, Uganda and Kenya, in accordance with SuperSport’s shift towards international broadcast convention. Meet our commentators from Ghana Eric Boadi Aseidu, Jefferies Kwabena Sintim-Koree and Alex Kobina Stonnie.
