How To Watch SA’s Olympics Opener
South Africa’s U23 side will open their Olympics campaign against hosts Japan today, and here is how you can watch the game.
David Notoane’s men take on Japan at 13:00, SA time, while France and Mexico already meet at 10:00.
South Africa have qualified for back-to-back Olympics and held hosts Brazil to a goalless draw in the opener of the 2016 tournament.
However, they were knocked out after failing to win any of their group stage fixtures, losing 1-0 to Denmark and drawing 1-1 with Iraq.
They hope to reach the knockout stages at this year’s edition, although being drawn in a very strong group.
Thursday’s opener will be live broadcast on SuperSpurt channels 201 and 205, while SABC will show the game on their OpenView channel 124 and Telkom One.
