The South African Football Association (SABC) has confirmed that it will broadcast on Tuesday the African Cup of Nations qualifier against Seychelles.
Earlier, the South African Football Association (SAFA) refuted claims that it was demanding 10 times the previous contractual broadcast rights amount from the SABC.
An amount of R110-million per annum was the agreement between the two parties in the three-year contract that expired at the end of April.
SAFA‘s acting CEO Russel Paul says the SABC is in fact offering R10 million.
At the weekend, the SABC didn’t broadcast the first match between Bafana Bafana and the Seychelles.
Paul has conceded that the fans are at the receiving end of the battle between the two organisations.
“We empathise with the public … the fact that the public have not had the opportunity to watch Bafana Bafana, and it’s not just Bafana Bafana. They missed out on the opportunity of celebrating with Banyana Banyana when they won the Cosafa tournament as well, even though that opportunity was granted to the SABC and they declined.”
