“The media manual will be implemented after the African Cup of Nations [in January], and we will test it on this game. It is of international top standard,” Siem said.
“It includes, for example, press conferences like this one for big games. And for non-right holders outside SuperSport and the SABC we will introduce the ‘mixed zone’.
“Both teams’ players and coaches will enter the mixed zone after the match, where the media can have their one-to-one interviews with players and coaches.”
Siem said the new TV graphic rivals any used by professional leagues around the world. “Since the match is being broadcast oversees it is the perfect time to introduce the new graphic. I would say it is probably the world’s best graphic, which you will see on SuperSport tomorrow.”
