Up to now matches in this league have been broadcast to DStv Premium, Compact Plus and Compact bouquets, but the exsenion to Family means it will be received by an even greater number of soccer enthusiasts.
“DStv’s SuperSport channels bring the world’s best sport, including soccer, into homes across Africa, and we feel sure DStv Family subscribers will be delighted to say ‘hola’ to the Spanish La Liga,” he said.
“From this Friday 18 August, they will get all the thrills of the football action from the likes of Messi, Ronaldo, Neymar and other greats who play for Spain’s La Liga clubs.
