JOHANNESBURG – The SA Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) on Friday night said it would not be broadcasting Premier Soccer League matches on their radio stations.
“This decision follows careful consideration to the SABC’s business operations, and the unsuccessful negotiations with the PSL to secure the broadcast rights for soccer matches on radio,” the broadcaster said in a statement.
“The SABC and PSL could not reach a consensus with regards to the terms of the contract, and this has unfortunately led to the SABC not being able to close the deal with PSL.”
The public broadcaster said the matches would, however, still be aired on its television stations.
On social media, local fans expressed their outrage at the outcome.
