KBC to show AFCON football free-to-air in Kenya

State-run broadcaster the Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC) has obtained free-to-air rights to every game in the upcoming African Cup of Nations (AFCON).

The deal allows KBC to show the tournament’s 52 matches on television, as well as the rights to air on 22 radio stations.

KBC is part of the African Union of Broadcasting, which in April acquired the Confederation of African Football’s entire inventory of free-to-air rights in Sub-Saharan Africa from 2019 to the end of 2022.

The AFCON kicks off on June 21 when host nation Egypt plays Zimbabwe with the final scheduled for July 19.
