Cricket South Africa extends broadcast agreement with SuperSport

This new broadcasting deal between CSA and SuperSport will now run until the end of the 2026-27 season.

The governing body for cricket in South Africa, Cricket South Africa (CSA) has extended its exclusive broadcast agreement with the South African pay-television broadcaster, SuperSport.

This new broadcasting deal will now run until the end of the 2026-27 season.

With all incoming Proteas Women matches scheduled to be aired over the next four years, the new agreement offers more coverage of the national women’s game than ever before.

Along with providing complete coverage of both men’s and women’s international events, SuperSport intends to air up to 60% of domestic matches in men’s Division 1 white-ball competition, involving the CSA T20 Challenge and One-Day Cup finals.

The rights to broadcast as well as stream non-televised domestic matches on its own digital channels have been granted to CSA as part of CSA and SuperSport’s plan to expand the game’s reach into new markets.

CSA, Chief Executive Officer, Pholetsi Moseki, commented, “We would like to thank SuperSport for their commitment to South African cricket over the years and their continued support during this next window that will run until the conclusion of the 2027 season. Their foresight and vision to grow the game has always been incredible and we are pleased that this vision will reach new heights with their added coverage of the women’s game.

“As we have seen over the last cycle when the Proteas Women made history, women’s cricket is growing at a rapid rate and the permanent coverage of all women’s internationals is a welcome boost. At the same time, we must not forget the domestic game, which feeds directly to the Proteas Men. SuperSport has remained steadfast in coverage of this area and on behalf of Cricket South Africa I cannot thank them enough for their support of cricket growth in the country.”

SuperSport, Chief Executive Officer, Tex Teixeira, said, “This extension reaffirms both our commitment to cricket and our enduring partnership with Cricket South Africa. SuperSport is especially pleased to elevate our investment in the Proteas Women’s game given the appetite of supporters and the ever-increasing player participation. We look forward to continue telling the story of South African cricket to a wide audience.”
