And there’s always a chance of celebrities and socialites dropping by for a touch-up and a fix-up.

SuperSport brings the action back in style this week!

SuperSport viewers on DStv can look forward to the return of live sport on a much bigger scale on the week of 12 to 18 June, including a relentless run of games from La Liga, the Charles Schwab Challenge and RBC Heritage tournament from golf’s PGA Tour, rugby from New Zealand’s Aotearoa competition, UFC Fight Night: Eye v Calvillo and WWE ‘Backlash’.

SuperSport is your home of sport and the best place to see all the action from around the world as #LiveSportReturns.


Football fans will be delighted to see La Liga back in full force, with the resumption of the title race between Barcelona and Real Madrid the highlight, while African fans will also be able to watch heroes from our continent such as Thomas Partey, Aissa Mandi and Samuel Chukwueze return to action.

The pick of games on offer in this week is the meeting of Real Madrid and Valencia at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on the evening of Thursday 18 June, with the latter’s Central African Republic midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia looking to thwart the Los Blancos stars in the ‘engine room’.


The first PGA Tour event to return to the golf calendar is the Charles Schwab Challenge, with Days 2, 3 and 5 live on SuperSport from 12 to 14 June, while Thursday 18 June brings Day 1 of the RBC Heritage tournament from South Carolina.


The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC ) was one of the first sports to return after the effects of world events and continues to host events at its APEX facility in Las Vegas with UFC Fight Night: Eye v Calvillo on the morning of Sunday 14 June. The main card is a Women’s flyweight match between Jessica Eye and Cynthia Calvillo.

The main card will also feature a co-main event between Middleweights Karl Roberson and Marvin Vettori. The pair have major bad blood between them after two previous cancellations and UFC president Dana White is expecting a thriller.

“There are a lot of fights when guys talk smack, and then there’s heat… and then the fight sucks,” White said. “That will not be the case with this fight. Vettori is so fun to watch fight. This guy goes for it. He goes for the finish in every fight, and Karl Roberson is the same way. This is a fight that has potential for Fight of the Night or Performance of the Night.”


The WWE has also been going strong for several weeks now and will hold another pay-per-view special with ‘Backlash’ on the morning of Monday 15 June. The event will be headlined by a match for the WWE Championship between title holder Drew McIntyre and Bobby Lashley. McIntyre has been the champ since WrestleMania when he defeated Brock Lesnar in impressive style, but Lashley – with his incredible power and athleticism – represents a genuine threat to the Scotsman’s reign.

“Drew McIntyre, he’s the ‘chosen one’ right? I not only have to beat him, I have to beat the office and I gotta beat all the UK [United Kingdom] fans, and I gotta beat everybody that’s pushing for him,” said Lashley. “I definitely want to win a world title. I definitely want to. The years that I’ve put in the business and the matches I’ve had with so many different people, I definitely want to.”
