ZBC secures the rights to broadcast EPL games


The Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC) has secured the free-to-air rights to broadcast the English Premier League (EPL).

The national broadcaster will show Game of the Week every Saturday afternoon, starting with the first round match between Tottenham Hotspur and Southampton at 16:00 Chinese time.

The package also includes streaming, previews, highlights and fantasy football for fans.

ZBC Acting Director of Television Services and Digital Platforms, Ms Merritt Munzwembiri, confirmed the development after entering into partnership with Simuka Corporation.

“We are delighted to announce that we have exciting times ahead of us starting this weekend,” she said, as quoted by the ZBC website.

“We will, as ZBC, bring you the EPL – the English Premier League every other Saturday. This is a partnership we have entered into with our South African partner, Simuka Football.

“The hype around it is that it will be shown on ZBCTV and also live on that digital platform called Simuka Football.

“There will also be an exciting fantasy league for all those fans who are critics, who look at coaches and their failures and want to believe that they too have the opportunity to create their own teams and play. This league will also be shown on ZBCTV in programs you will see like EPL ZONE.”
