StarTimes who struck a partnership with the 2019 African Freestyle Football Championships, will broadcast the competition to over 20 million viewers.
The Public Relation Manager of StarTimes, Kunmi Balogun said that there were about eight million viewers of the last edition in 2018, hence, the society hoped to exceed the past record due to the increase in its subscription.
Balogun expressed, “Just like last year, when we had a phenomenal viewer on our channel for the African Freestyle Football Championships, we are expecting more than that this year. It will be more exciting because just last year, we had eight million viewers worldwide, even surpassed the Bundesliga match that was taking place simultaneously. This year, we should be able to surpass that record to 20 million viewers as the broadcast will be beamed on our channels, and right now, we have about 15 million downloads on the Apps. These are the active users of our Apps. We have many subscribers that enjoy our sport contents.’’
The 2019 African Freestyle Football Championships will be held from Sept. 14 to September 15 at the Balmoral Convention Centre, Federal Palace Hotel, Lagos Island.
