Leading Football Leagues, Tennis, Motorsport, UFC, and Others Available for DStv Access to Premium App Users This Weekend


DStv is a big brand, probably because it has some of the best live games programming deals with leading sports broadcasters.

To this end, and as a way to reward the growing number of customers accessing their favourite content through the DStv App, DStv is hosting the biggest Open Weekend yet.

According to DStv, the deal is exclusive to customers on the DStv App.

It starts from Friday 24 to Sunday 26 September 2021. That is when customers across the continent on all DStv packages will have unrestricted access to sporting content across some of the best SuperSport channels including WWE, SuperSport La Liga, SuperSport Football, SuperSport Cricket, SuperSport Premier League, SuperSport Golf, and SuperSport Tennis among many others.

Remember that the Open Weekend does not apply to SuperSport Rugby.

It’s a Baller Weekend on the DStv App and you need to Up Your Game! Catch all the weekend’s biggest games with unlimited sport on the DStv App.

The way our customers access content is changing and we’re changing along with them. The DStv App has always allowed customers to stream live channels or watch the latest episodes of their favourite shows. For one weekend only, we’re adding all of our SuperSport channels to the mix, so they can kick back, relax and enjoy their favourite sporting fixtures – Nancy Matimu, Managing Director MultiChoice Kenya.

Some of the leading sporting content to catch on this Open Weekend includes two Premier League thrillers, as Chelsea take on Manchester City (Saturday 1430 hrs LIVE on SuperSport Premier League) and Arsenal battle Tottenham Hotspur in the North London derby (Sunday 1830 hrs LIVE on SuperSport Premier League).

Other football matches include La Liga games such as Real Madrid v Villarreal (Saturday 22:00  LIVE on SuperSport La Liga), Barcelona v Levante (Sunday 17:15 LIVE on SuperSport La Liga) and Serie A’s Rome Derby, or the ‘Derby della Capitale’, between Lazio and Roma (Sunday 19:00 LIVE on SuperSport Football).

Motorsport fans can get their thrills from Formula 1‘s Russian Grand Prix (Qualifying on Saturday at 14:00 CAT and the Race on Sunday at 15:00, both LIVE on SuperSport Motorsport), while tennis fans can catch the final of the WTA Tour’s Ostrava Open (15:30 LIVE on SuperSport Tennis).

Another major highlight is the Ryder Cup, golf’s traditional showdown between Europe and the United States. This year’s event takes place at the Whistling Straights Golf Course in Haven, Wisconsin. You can Catch Day 1 (Friday 14:00 CAT), Day 2 (Saturday 15:00), and Day 3 (Sunday 19:00) all LIVE on SuperSport Grandstand and SuperSport Golf.

Fans of something more visceral and violent can take in UFC 266 (Sunday Prelims 03:00 and Main Card 05:00 LIVE on SuperSport Action), which will be headlined Alexander Volkanovski and Brian Ortega’s grudge match for the UFC Featherweight Championship in the headline bout.

Lastly, if you want your fighting to come with a fair scoop of ‘kayfabe’ alongside it, then check out the latest edition of WWE SmackDown (Saturday 03:00 LIVE on SuperSport Variety 3), where you can catch up on the latest shenanigans heading into Monday’s Pay Per View event, Extreme Rules.

Another key highlight is the Berlin Marathon (Sunday 10:00 LIVE on SuperSport Variety 3), which will see 25,000 runners taking part in the biggest road running race anywhere in the world since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic last year.

What makes this Open Weekend even rewarding is that with the DStv App, customers will be able to enjoy sporting content that is not always accessible on packages outside of DStv Premium, and they can access this content while on the move through their smartphones or other smart and mobile devices.

The DStv App can be downloaded in Google Play and in the App store.
