South African broadcaster, SuperSport has joined the PRO14 roster of the broadcasting partners with a deal to cover a range of live matches in the re-designed tournament which now boasts participation by the Kings and Currie Cup champions the Cheetahs.

"This is an exciting property that offers an entirely new flavour," said Gideon Khobane, CEO of SuperSport last week. "There's a particular intrigue in northern hemisphere rugby and to be part of this pioneering change presents an array of possibilities, both for the teams and indeed SuperSport. We look forward to watching the action unfold from this weekend."

SuperSport will produce select SA-based fixtures and take the overseas feed on other PRO 14 matches that will be broadcast.

“We’re delighted SuperSport have reached agreement to acquire the rights to broadcast the Guinness PRO14,” said Jurie Roux, CEO of SA Rugby. “This is a fascinating and ground-breaking change for rugby and I am sure people will be keen to tune in and see how the hemispheres measure up against each other in club competition. SuperSport have given us a ring side seat and we’re already looking forward to Friday night’s inaugural broadcast.”
