As the TotalEnergies Women’s Champions League kicked-off last week in Cairo, Egypt, a number of international broadcasters have acquired the rights for the competition.
With the tournament making its debut this year, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) has named a number of broadcast partners, including; BeIN Sports, SuperSport International, Canal + and FIFATV (YouTube).
CAF General Secretary, Veron Mosengo-Omba, commented: “It is important that this product we are trying to build is visible in Africa and beyond. We are delighted to see that a number of top international broadcasters will be showing matches live.
“This is a positive message and a motivation to the players who will be participating in the competition. The advancement of women’s football in Africa is a priority for the CAF President Dr Patrice Motsepe and the CAF Executive Committee; we have to ensure that the content is readily available to the consumers and football fans.”
BeIN is showing the tournament in the Middle East, North Africa, USA, Canada and Asia-Pacific territories including Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Indonesia, East Timor, Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong.
Meanwhile, SuperSport and Canal Plus are covering the event in sub-Saharan Africa, and the event is being shown in the rest of the world via the FifaTV YouTube channel.
“The highly quality TV product will ensure that we do not lower the standards but instead advance Africa’s cause to future sponsors who will partner with us in the future,” Mosengo-Omba added.
This is the first ever TotalEnergies CAF Women’s Champions League, with the qualifiers organised by the six CAF recognised zones.
