Sky PerfecTV to follow Kakitani’s progress in Swiss Super League

Japanese satellite television broadcaster Sky PerfecTV has acquired rights to the 2014-15 season of the Swiss Super League, the top division of Swiss football.

The agreement comes after Japanese international Yoichiro Kakitani signed for FC Basel on Monday.

The 24-year-old midfielder (pictured) has made the move to the reigning Super League champion from J-League club Cerezo Osaka, where he scored 21 goals last season.

Under the terms of its deal, Sky PerfecTV will broadcast live all Super League games featuring FC Basel.
