Yes, that’s every single game of the English Premier League on your mobile phone for just R69 per month!

[Johannesburg, 1 March 2024] – Showmax is turning up the heat for subscribers to its Premier League mobile subscription with the appointment of sportscaster and radio legend Robert Marawa as brand ambassador.

For Premier League fans in South Africa, Marawa is the nexus of all things football. He delivers incisive and witty commentary on the beautiful game to his listeners via Marawa Sports Worldwide, available on several radio and online platforms.

“Robert brings an African perspective to the Premier League. He knows a lot about football, and we can’t think of a better brand ambassador to share how easy to use and affordable the Showmax Premier League mobile plan is with football fans across the continent,” says Marc Jury, chief executive officer of Showmax.

“We believe that his personality, brand and knowledge of all things football, combined with the unique value proposition of our Showmax Premier League product, make an unstoppable partnership. We are also excited to be announcing this great partnership ahead of the Manchester Derby, which is always one of the best football match-ups anywhere in the world!”.

Says Robert Marawa of the partnership, “Those that know me will understand why this partnership is a match made in heaven for me. I am a huge fan of the English Premier League, and I am very invested in that team from Liverpool. It is an honour for me to bring African flavour to the heated debates that precede and follow every Premier League game. Showmax offers fans across the continent a convenient and affordable way to connect and express their passion for one of the best football leagues in the world. Fans across the continent will have the Premier League in their pockets with the Showmax Premier League plan, and I will be there right beside them delivering the facts, stats, opinions, and passion of the African supporters.”

This season is proving to be one of the most competitive in recent memory, as after 26 games, Liverpool, Manchester City and Arsenal are leading the pack, separated by a point each. March will no doubt be an explosive month as we edge closer to the end of the season, kicking off with the electrifying Manchester Derby. Can the Red Devils rise to the occasion and shake up Man City’s title aspirations, or will City continue their reign over Manchester? Will Klopp close off his Liverpool tour of duty at the top of the league? What are the odds of Arsenal taking the coveted silverware, something that has eluded them for almost 20 years?
