Johannesburg - SAFA have signed a lucrative R1 billion deal with new broadcaster Siyaya TV, the City Press have reported on Sunday.

Siyaya TV will have the rights to show all the matches of the senior and junior national teams, which include Bafana Bafana and Banyana Banyana.

The deal means that the national broadcaster, the SABC will have to buy the rights to broadcast matches played by Bafana Bafana from Siyaya TV.

The SABC's contract with SAFA is expected to expire at the end of April 2015, after which Siyaya TV is said to take over.

However, Siyaya TV only plan to launch in June 2015.

The deal is said to also include prospective rights to added soccer events from around the world.
