Nigerian football fans have been assured of quality broadcast of the European zone of the Russia 2018 World Cup qualifiers, which resumes tomorrow.

The qualifiers’ rights holder, Pay-tv network, StarTimes said it would beam all the 25 matches live from Europe this weekend on both its DTT (antenna) and DTH (dish) platforms.

StarTimes’ Head of Public Relations, Israel Bolaji said yesterday that seven games would be played tomorrow, nine on Saturday and nine on Sunday, adding that they would all be beamed live on its sports channels.


Bolaji added, “it promises to be another exciting weekend of sporting entertainment for StarTimes viewers as they can catch their football heroes dazzle in World Cup qualifier actions as each team battles for a slot in Russia 2018 finals.

“The World Cup represents the biggest soccer tournament in the world, but the journey to the promised land is often fraught with dangerous bends, twists and turns that often snuff life out of the contending gladiators seeking a place in the tournament. As the exclusive broadcast rights holder of the European zone, StarTimes will show no fewer than 25 live World Cup matches this weekend, starting from tomorrow through Sunday.”

Some of the top games include former world champions, Italy going up in arms against Albania and another former champion, Spain taking on Israel both tomorrow.

Belgium will face Greece on Saturday with 1998 World Cup champions, France against Luxembourg even as reigning European champions, Portugal are at home against Hungary while Netherlands will also battle Bulgaria.
