I can see the first half of Classico will be followed in this thread smh
Damn Currie Cup Final smh
Oh alright,thanks for elaborating. It has to be one of the rare countries in Africa where it's like that. Everywhere I've been,mostly in East and West Africa, football's been king in all aspects. So there's not that much investment in football? What impact would you say the WC a few years ago had on the sports popularity around the country?
I feel you,can't find the match anywhere on TV here either
Yeah man, most African countries, footy is king.
The investment has been much smaller compared to rugby and cricket, but like I said before, ABSA (division of Barclay's) has become the PSL sponsor, and investment has gone into teams like Sundowns and SuperSport United, making it more of a 3-4 horse race instead of the usual Chiefs and Pirates race.
The WC didn't really have an impact on footy popularity. We were just saying a few hours ago, what's messed up, is that at a pub in a middle-class to wealthy area, won't even play local football on tv. It's EPL or CL ONLY. Not even the local derby will get love.
