COSATU calls for restoration of SABC’s soccer radio coverage
28 August 2007
The Congress of South African Trade Unions, COSATU, is extremely angry and disappointed at the cancellation of the temporary agreement, to allow the SABC to broadcast the Premier Soccer League matches.
“Soccer is the national game, particularly among the poorer sections of the population,“ says COSATU National Spokesperson, Patrick Craven.
Craven explains that it’s mainly people who are to poor to afford a television, who depend on the radio to get the news of their favourite sport.
“We believe ways must be found between the PSL and the SABC to sort this out and to get the coverage back onto the public broadcaster,” says Craven.
