There have been some concerns among football enthusiasts regarding the timing of some of the matches which will kick in the early hours and when asked if SBC will be rebroadcasting the games, Ms Legaie replied: “At the moment we have no plans to re-broadcast the matches as they will interfere with our programme schedule.”
She however, said that should they decide to do so, they will inform the public.
