The much-anticipated super Cup match in Somalia is slated for Thursday 24th of December 2015 and will be put before international audience by the London-based Universal TV and the State-owned Television [SNTV].

The supper cup is normally played between the National league winners and the winners of General Da’ud Cup. This means that the Police-owned Football Club [Heegan] who are the defending champions will take on the military side [Horseed] who lifted the General Da’ud Cup after beating Heegan 2-1 in the final match last Thursday.

SNTV and Universal are the most-watched Somali TVs and with Universal TV joining hands with Somali FA, the super cup match is expected that millions more in-home TV viewers will watch it from their homes across the world.

"The Somali National TV was already in cooperation with us, but the arrival of Universal TV will make a big difference. We are very much pleased that Universal TV another major broadcaster has joined us only because of the promotion of Somali football” Somali FA president, Abdiqani Said Arab, said in a statement on Wednesday.

The president also thanked the National TV and the production company Horn Connect which will be working alongside them for playing a big role in encouraging the football progress in the country.

However, Universal TV, a privately-owned Somali broadcaster will be doing the live coverage independently, as they have already set up their transmitters at Stadium Banadir.

Last week the first ever football match in the country was watched live on the State-run television. This was a successful endeavor which attracted the attention millions of Somalis and none-Somalis around the world.
