Champions League Returns To Dstv next season

SUPERSPORT, a foremost premium sports content aggregator on the DStv platform has secured the rights to the UEFA Champions ’ League matches for the Nigerian territory for the 2011/ 2012 season. By this development, SuperSport will have the rights to all 146 live matches to the prestigious Champions ’ League as well as the UEFA Super Cup and 205 live matches in the Europa League.
