SuperSport comes to Sakubva

Tomorrow’s match pitting the Mutare-based soldiers and the defending league champions will be  the first time the SuperSport lens shoot from Sakubva.

It will also mark the start of a busy week for the SuperSport crew as they will cover a three other matches during the course of the week.

“On Wednesday, SuperSport's Outside Broadcast (OB) van will be at Sakubva Stadium in Mutare for the first time, as Buffaloes host defending champions Dynamos.

“The OB van and crew will then head to the capital for Thursday's match between third-placed Harare City and Monomotapa at Rufaro Stadium, followed by two more big games at the weekend.

“On Saturday 22 June, the clash between CAPS United and log leaders Highlanders at the National Sports Stadium will be live on SuperSport 9, and encounters between these two teams are always fiercely-fought.

“On Sunday your World of Champions brings you the match at Rufaro between Dynamos and newly-promoted How Mine, who have been the biggest surprise package of the season so far.”
