As earlier reported by snl24.com/kickoff, PSL chairman Irvin Khoza has introduced the DStv Premiership following a five-year partnership agreement between the two parties.
The relationship extends from the broadcast deal between the League and SuperSport International that has seen football streamed on the premium content provider.
"There is no 'them and us'. We are joined at the hip to produce enhanced consumption of the best product for our deserving supporters. This affiliation is special because it is the only affiliation that is as appealing to the young as it is to the old.
"It is the only affiliation that cuts across race, gender, creed, culture and political affiliations in the manner that it does. It creates equal conversations between people irrespective of their educational backgrounds and social strata."
MultiChoice Group CEO Calvo Mawela added: "The DStv Premiership is the coming together of two brands that connect South Africans emotionally. Whether you are watching the best of local football or the best local entertainment, the passion for both is unmatched.
