Cricket South Africa (CSA) renews broadcast agreement with SuperSport

May 17, 2023

The exclusive broadcast contract between Cricket South Africa (CSA), the country’s cricket-governing body, and SuperSport, a pay-television broadcaster based in South Africa, has been renewed.

The new broadcasting agreement will be in effect through the end of the 2026–27 season and provide more coverage of the national women’s game than ever before, with all upcoming Proteas Women matches planned to be broadcast over the following four years.

SuperSport plans to broadcast up to 60% of domestic matches in men’s Division 1 white-ball competition, including the CSA T20 Challenge and the One-Day Cup finals, in addition to offering comprehensive coverage of both men’s and women’s international competitions.

As part of CSA and SuperSport’s strategy to take the game into new areas, the former has been awarded the authority to broadcast and stream non-televised domestic matches on its own digital platforms.

Pholetsi Moseki, Chief Executive Officer, CSA, commented:

We would like to thank SuperSport for their commitment to South African cricket over the years and their continued support during this next window that will run until the conclusion of the 2027 season. Their foresight and vision to grow the game has always been incredible and we are pleased that this vision will reach new heights with their added coverage of the women’s game. As we have seen over the last cycle when the Proteas Women made history, women’s cricket is growing at a rapid rate and the permanent coverage of all women’s internationals is a welcome boost. At the same time, we must not forget the domestic game, which feeds directly to the Proteas Men. SuperSport has remained steadfast in coverage of this area and on behalf of Cricket South Africa I cannot thank them enough for their support of cricket growth in the country.

Tex Teixeira, SuperSport, Chief Executive Officer, said:

This extension reaffirms both our commitment to cricket and our enduring partnership with Cricket South Africa. SuperSport is especially pleased to elevate our investment in the Proteas Women’s game given the appetite of supporters and the ever-increasing player participation. We look forward to continue telling the story of South African cricket to a wide audience.
