The South African Hockey Association (SAHA) has confirmed that majority of the matches that will be played at the upcoming International Hockey Federation (FIH) men’s Junior World Cup (JWC) will be broadcast live on selected SuperSport channels.

Set to take place in India from 8th to 18th December 2016, the men’s JWC, held every four years, is a spectacle of new talent. The event is the perfect platform for young players to unleash their raw skill onto the international hockey scene. With 16 teams competing for the ultimate prize the men’s JWC is always an exciting event.

Launched at the FIH Congress in 2014, the Hockey Revolution has sparked a new era in hockey worldwide.  The Hockey Revolution is a ten-year strategy for hockey and will pave the way until 2024 – the FIH Centenary.

At the outset of this strategy, five key initiatives were identified to drive the FIH towards its goals. The second initiative is to revolutionise TV production and distribute it far and wide, giving every person on the planet the chance to fall in love with sport.

Marissa Langeni, CEO of SAHA said: “This is a very exciting moment for hockey in South Africa and is a key part of the FIH’s Hockey Revolution strategy. Over the course of the men’s JWC, SuperSport will be providing hockey enthusiasts with a world class TV broadcast, bringing fans much closer to all of the action.

“For the 2016 event, 40 of the men’s JWC games, including all of South Africa men’s matches, the semi-finals and the finals will be broadcast live across selected SuperSport channels. We are grateful for SuperSport’s investment and commitment to growing hockey within South Africa.”

Hockey fans across South Africa will be able to watch the following games, via various SuperSport platforms:
