StarTimes to air the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup

StarTimes will broadcast the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup live in its channels ST World Football, channel number 245 and ST Sports Premium, channel number 246.  The tournament will see eight teams competing for the trophy and will welcome the winners of different regional tournaments such as UEFA, CONCAF, AFC etc.

“It will be fierce, especially in group B with FIFA World Cup champions Germany and Copa America holders Chile. Cameroon, Africa’s champion, will try to beat the odds. In the group A, European champion Portugal is the obvious favourite but Russia plays at home and is eager to make its fans proud,” says the Director of StarTimes, Ernest Quaye Arday.

To recall, StarTimes boast having almost 10 million subscribers and covers 90% of the continent population. This will allow Africans to have chance to watch and support their teams throughout the competition.
