NAIROBI, Kenya, November 11 – Supersport 9 on DSTV will beam live the thrilling grand finale of the Kenya Premier League when league leaders Ulinzi take on Karuturi Sports at Afraha Stadium on Sunday at 3:00pm live on SuperSport 9 on DStv, while Gor Mahia take on Nairobi City Stars at City stadium.
There will be a half-hour build up to both matches live from specially set up studios in Nairobi as well as live crossings to both venues for a feel of the atmosphere within the stadiums before kick off.
“We have brought in extra cameras, and a special link that we used at the world cup to send the signal for broadcast. It uses the internet and if it proves successful then we shall use it a lot more next season,” said SuperSport Head of Africa Gary Rathbone.
After 29 rounds of high level competition and 232 matches in eight months, the destiny of the 2010 diadem will be determined in an afternoon of high drama and SuperSport will cover every minute of the action.
For Gor Mahia, a win would be an unbelievable achievement for a team that started the league in slow motion winning just once in their opening five matches. Crucially that win was against City Stars and they will hope that it’s a good omen for Sunday.
