The Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) delighted the Nigerian football community by announcing that it will broadcast all 52 matches of the African Cup of Nations, scheduled from January 13 to February 11, 2024, hosted in Ivory Coast.

The news was shared on NTA’s official handle on Wednesday, January 10, 2024, following the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding with Afro Sports. This development brings relief to concerned Nigerians, ensuring they can watch the Super Eagles and other competing teams in this prestigious continental competition.

Why will DSTV not show AFCON 2023?

New World TV, a broadcasting company based in Togo, has obtained exclusive rights to broadcast AFCON 2023 in Ivory Coast and 2025 in Morocco.

The African football governing body has officially announced a historic Media Rights Agreement with New World TV, covering CAF’s Free to Air and Pay-TV English and Local Languages Media Rights for Sub-Saharan territories from 2023 to 2025.

What did CAF President say on the broadcasting rights?

CAF President Patrice Motsepe announced on the official website that the Media Rights Agreement with New World TV marks the largest investment by a Pan-African broadcaster in CAF’s history.

He expressed pride in partnering with such a globally competitive and innovative broadcasting company, highlighting New World TV’s ability to adapt to changing demands and viewing patterns in modern football.

Motsepe also commended New World TV for introducing novel approaches to video content consumption through partnerships with mobile operators and television networks.
