SABC failed to reach an agreement with SuperSport over the rugby broadcasts.
The news was confirmed by sportscaster Thabiso Mosia, after the public broadcaster failed to reach an agreement with SuperSport over the rugby broadcasts.
SuperSport parent company, MultiChoice, owns both TV and radio rights.
Earlier this year, SABC Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Yolande van Biljon, told parliament’s committee on Public Enterprises and Communication in August that the public broadcaster is technically bankrupt.
The tournament kicks off in Japan on 20 September 2019.
Meanwhile, SABC spokesperson, Vuyo Mthembu, says that have tried all alternatives to secure rights to broadcast the World Cup.
“SABC was also negotiating the radio rights with another party which was IMG and unfortunately an agreement there could also not be reached,” adds Mthembu.
