YANGA! TV unveils broadcast plans for Middle East Rugby League
Nigerians and rugby lovers in five other countries will soon have the opportunity of watching live broadcasts of the Middle East (MEA) Rugby League from October, YANGA! TV has announced. According to YANGA! TV’s Vice Chairman/General Manager, Ade Adebisi, the outfit has lined up an exciting array of supporting events involving the International Development Programme (IDP) initiative.
He added: “Initial plans are for the competition to be broadcast live into five countries with talks on-going to take it into a further 10. Yanga means self-pride and showing-off (in West African pidgin) and is an enthusiastic, positive, form of self-expression.
“The MEA is the first of its kind in this format and as Nigerians, we take pride in bringing this competition to our nation. We hope that the people can rally round us and support our efforts.”
Also speaking on the programme, CEO, YANGA! TV, Lindsey Oliver, said, “We plan to serve and entertain Nigerians everywhere by making the event available to be viewed in Nigeria, the United Kingdom and beyond.”
Thrilled by the development, RLEF Regional Director, Remond Safi, said he is “excited to see the MEA Rugby League Championship receiving its first media coverage and the confidence shown by YANGA! TV to showcase our great game. It is a fantastic result for the MEA region and will help to provide this inaugural event with the exposure it deserves.”
