Netball South Africa and SuperSport are proud to announce that SuperSport will be the broadcast partner for the upcoming Netball Diamond Challenge with all the Internationals being broadcast live.

The Netball Diamond Challenge will see South Africa, Malawi, Botswana and Zambia competing in a round robin tournament at the Heartfelt Arena in Pretoria from 15 – 18 August 2012.

The objective of the tournament is to celebrate the role of women in sport and in particular elevate the profile of Netball in South Africa as we celebrate women’s month.

Brandon Foot, SuperSport Head of Acquisitions and Legal said, “SuperSport is delighted to have concluded a three-year deal with Netball South Africa to broadcast the Netball Diamond Challenge on all broadcast platforms throughout sub- Saharan Africa and the adjacent islands.

“As SuperSport we support the view of the Honourable Minister of Sport Mr. Fikile Mbalula, that Netball is a sport with tremendous potential, which is deserving of support,” Foot concluded.
