DStv and GOtv Deliver Commonwealth Action live on SuperSport
Eighteen countries across the continent, including Namibia, will compete at the 21st Commonwealth Games in Australia starting on April 4

18 countries. 18 sport codes. 275 medals. SuperSport heats up with live broadcast of the 21st Commonwealth Games this April!

The World of Champions guarantees an exhilarating viewing experience, securing exclusive pay television rights across Sub-Saharan Africa. Whether on the track, field or court, don’t miss world class athletes like Olympic champion Caster Semenya, Blessing Okagbare and the Malawi netball stars as they create nail-biting sporting entertainment.

Nijel Amos (800m Botswana) has the odds stacked in his favour, as world record holder David Rudisha skips these Games. For Botswana this could be big, especially as Babaloki Thebe and Isaac Makwala are poised to battle it out for the 400m gold.

Great expectations from Nigeria’s Glasgow star, Okagbare, will be steel-eyed as she looks to defend her sprint double, while Kenya pins hope on twin-force Helen Obiri (5000m) and Conseslus Kipruto (3000m).

Four dedicated DStv channels - SS11, SS12, SS13 (Family package) and SS14 (Access Package), two GOtv channels (Select 3 and Select 1) and Maximo are all set to share moments of the Commonwealth Games.

With African medal hopes high for athletics, netball, rugby and swimming, the Opening Ceremony on Wednesday, April 4 (11:55 CAT) promises to set the stage for fireworks on the field. The Closing Ceremony is scheduled for April 15 (12:25 CAT).
