The Premier Soccer League and DStv are proud to announce the return of the DStv Diski Challenge, which will kick-off Saturday, 11 September 2021.
Anchored on the tagline Woz’Uzobabona (come see them in action), the eighth instalment of the Diski Challenge promises not only to be entertaining for the viewer but engaging and educational on and off the field for players and supporters alike.
Due to the covid-19 regulations, football fans will not be able to attend the matches as yet. However, that does not mean that they will not get to see some of the country’s most exciting young football talent strutting their stuff as most of the matches will be broadcast live on television.
The DStv Diski Challenge is a platform for aspiring academy and reserve team players to develop their skills by playing regularly in a competitive league. The initiative continues to be the pipeline for unearthing South Africa’s football talent whilst acting as training ground for the country’s next generation of broadcasters through the on-the-job experience provided to broadcast interns.
Since its inception in 2014, the Diski Challenge has catapulted over 250 academy stars to the professional ranks of the DStv Premiership, GladAfrica Championship as well as to leagues abroad. Internationally acclaimed star, Percy Tau being amongst the selected few South African football professionals to have made it into the English Premier League (EPL) and more recently signing with the most successful team in Africa, Al Ahly.
As Africa’s leading sports development investor and broadcaster, MultiChoice prides itself in enriching lives and initiatives such as the DStv Diski Challenge allows the organisation to continue providing South Africans with the opportunity to tell their stories most authentically and bettering their lives.
