Official broadcast partners of the Nigeria Premier League, Supersport will soon beam one more live game as soon as they acquire another Outside Broadcast, OB van.
Head of Media and Publicity of the League, Emeka Nwani told naijafootball247.com that they have been in consultations with Supersport and there has been a promise to bring in another OB van to increase their coverage of games especially in the northern part of Nigeria.
“Supersport have said they are expecting another OB van and when it comes, that van will be stationed in Abuja to cover the northern part of the country,” Nwani said.
A few years ago, only one live game was on television in Nigeria and then it increased to two three years ago and two seasons ago there were three live games on television, two by supersport and one from the Nigeria Television Authority, NTA but since then there has been no improvement.
