Cape Town - Parliament has welcomed the brokering of the deal to allow the SABC to broadcast soccer after two weeks of blackouts.
This followed a stalemate between the Premier Soccer League, MultiChoice and the SABC over the deal.
The SABC had complained it was not getting any money back after paying R280 million a year for the soccer rights.
But Minister of Sports, Arts and Culture Nathi Mthethwa and Minister of Communications Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams intervened and met with the PSL, MultiChoice and the SABC in Cape Town on Thursday evening.
On Friday the parties announced that a deal had been struck and the soccer matches will be broadcast from this weekend.
