MultiChoice Uganda on Wednesday launched the 2022/23 football season which is due to kick-off in a few days. The exercise took place at the Net Studios in Kitintale, Kampala.
MultiChoice Uganda through its DStv and GOtv selected sports channels will offer its Supersport viewers a cocktail of leagues and games from the Premier League, La Liga, UEFA Europa League, Serie A and UEFA Europa Conference League.
Meanwhile, first up is the much-anticipated 2022 FA Community Shield clash which will be played at Leicester City’s King Power Stadium with last season’s Premier League title holders Manchester City and FA Cup winners Liverpool on 31 July 2022.
“We are excited to once again deliver the best comprehensive coverage of the beautiful game to football lovers across the continent,” Daniel Komunda, the Senior Marketing and Operations Manager at MultiChoice Uganda mentioned, adding that, “We have maintained the best standards as we continue to offer world-class level-action to our customers on platforms that are convenient to them – whether on digital platforms or television.”
Josephine Namuddu, the GOtv Brand Manager said, “We have acknowledged that football is one the most widely watched sports in Uganda, therefore we are excited to announce the return of an exciting season unlike any other with a tournament that returns after 4 years, the 2022 FIFA World Cup.”
In the Premier League, all eyes will be on the battle between Manchester City and Liverpool, as these two brilliant teams look set to battle it out for the title once again – but will Chelsea or an energized Tottenham Hotspur provide a threat? And what of Manchester United and their new era under Erik ten Hag?
Real Madrid will begin La Liga as the favourites to retain their title, but a determined Diego Simeone and Atletico Madrid will be itching to knock their rivals off the perch, while Barcelona could be a wildcard under the leadership of club legend Xavi.
In Italy’s Serie A, AC Milan are still revelling in last season’s championship triumph, but arch rivals Internazionale will be gunning for their title, as will the likes of Juventus, Napoli and Roma in what could be another thrilling race for the Scudetto.
The UEFA Champions League is unquestionably the gold standard for club football around the world and the big question is whether the ‘new money’ of Man City or Paris Saint-Germain can finally become kings of Europe, or will it be the established royalty of Real Madrid which triumphs yet again?
And the UEFA Europa League and UEFA Europa Conference League provide a platform for other clubs to search out glory, as evidenced by the respective triumphs of Eintracht Frankfurt and Roma last term.
And if all that was not exciting enough for the New Football Season, the sport’s most epic event will take place right in the middle of the season, as November and December brings the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, an historic event which will see one nation crowned as the globe’s leading football light.
In addition, the Portuguese-language channels, now featuring four options, will have a new focus in terms of football coverage. SuperSport Maximo 1 will be the home of the UEFA Champions League; SuperSport Maximo 2 will be your home for the Premier League; SuperSport Maximo 3 will feature La Liga and the UEFA Europa League; and SuperSport Maximo 360 will focus on action from Serie A.
However, this development comes just days after MultiChoice launched the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 in Kampala ahead of the global showpiece scheduled for 21 November to 18 December.
MultiChoice Uganda the home of great pay TV entertainment unveiled its offering for the biggest and most revered football tournament, a campaign geared towards amplifying the feeling and excitement of the fans dubbed “It’s All Here.” This will see fans and footballers enjoy the one of the most sought after football events.
