SuperSport parades World Cup greats

Given that the Fifa World Cup lets fans connect with greatness like nothing on earth, SuperSport has started its 2018 tournament campaign by dipping into iconic World Cup moments – as told by the players themselves.

The first broadcast this weekend included prolific World Cup striker Michael Owen, who recalls being a 10-year-old shedding tears as Paul Gascoigne was carded against Germany at Italia ’90 – a card that would have seen Gazza unable to play in the final had England progressed.

Then there’s 1996 Olympic champion Sunday Oliseh, scorer of the winning goal in Nigeria’s group stage match against Spain in the 1998 World Cup, who tells how that goal liberated his nation.

This goosebump-inspiring series took the production team on a trip around the world, from Holland to the UK, Nigeria and beyond.

“We worked with production house Thackwell and Whittaker to interview the greats and capture their stories in an authentic and heartfelt way,” explained Marc Jury, SuperSport’s head of marketing. “The results have been remarkable and we look forward to rolling these out as the tournament draws closer.”

Over the next five months, in the buildup to kick-off, SuperSport viewers will be able to connect with moments that gave them goosebumps, made their hearts beat faster and remind how wonderful it is when the world stops and watches the greatest sporting event on earth.

SuperSport viewers, like no one on the continent, will connect with greatness – all 64 matches will be broadcast live and in High Definition throughout sub-Saharan Africa and the adjacent islands, with insight and analysis provided by a panel of local and international footballing greats.
