The coverage will take place during the Fifa break, starting this week.

Viewers will be able to watch more than 30 matches from Wednesday. The action will feature European nations which fared well in the recent World Cup.

The tournament will be broadcast live only on SuperSport’s multiple platforms, which include TV, online via the DStv Now App and digital.

“We are very excited to bring this new tournament to our loyal customers. Football fans need not be worried as international football breaks will remain packed with football on SuperSport. Only the World of Champions provides you with a front row view of all the football that really matters,” said SuperSport CEO Gideon Khobane.

Thursday’s opening fixtures star two blockbuster match-ups.

World champions France will be up against a German side eager to make amends for their World Cup disappointment.

World Cup runners-up Croatia, led by the recently crowned Uefa Men’s Player of the Year, Luka Modric, will face off against Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal. – African News Agency (ANA)
