“With World Cup fever still in the air, it’s a great time to be a football fan.

Games on SuperSport will come thick and fast: just as fans want.” said Foot.

The qualifiers, which run over six weekends, begin in early September and continue through November ahead of the AFCON tournament in Morocco in January.
