The Mzansi Super League will enter its third edition in 2020 and is due to get underway in December. That is if CONVID-19 doesn’t force postponement into 2021.

Having started with six franchise based teams, the tournament has made a loss of what is reported to be around R200million over the last two years. This is mainly down to the lack of a broadcasting sponsor but Cricket South Africa (CSA) is currently in discussions with Pay TV channel, SuperSport.

The previous two editions were broadcasted on SABC, South Africa’s national broadcaster; however it was given to them, rather than sold. CSA now believes it has a project that can start reversing the revenue streams and thus are looking for a broadcast deal as well as expanding the Mzansi Super League to eight teams.

These extra two teams will come from the cities of Bloemfontein and East London, neither of which have a participating team currently.

This is good news from people from those cities who have yet to experience the excitement of the Mzansi Super League. Despite the financial losses the tournament has made over the last two years, it has been enjoyed by the country, with a vast array of young talents been identified through it.

The 2020 Mzansi Super League is still expected to go ahead in December, although exact dates have not been confirmed. Should COVID-19 persist it will likely be moved to March 2021.
