Electronic media outlets are likely to know their fate on the broadcasting of MTN Premier League matches tomorrow afternoon. This follows the reported stoppage of Eswatini Television and Channel Yemaswati from broadcasting the MTN Premier League matches last weekend at the Mavuso Sports Centre. A source close to the matter revealed that the two stations representatives met with the Premier League of Eswatini in a meeting which was attended by the organisation’s Chairman Mark Carmichael. “The media outlets and PLE met today (yesterday) about this issue and they have discussed how they will work together going forward and they will probably meet again tomorrow. that is when they will know their fate. “They might be granted provisional rights for the weekend games pending negotiations,” the source said. Channel Yemaswati Director Qhawe Mamba confirmed their meeting with the football organisation. “We did meet with PLE and they raised issues of creating revenue for soccer and also they are looking for partnership, whereby they want us to make a proposal on how we can work together going forward, “he said. Eswatini Television Authority Communications Officer Nomphumelelo Dlamini asked to comment after getting a green light from their authorities. Meanwhile, PLE Chief Operations Officer Pat Vilakati said they have asked the media outlets to submit proposals to broadcast the matches. “We have asked the electronic media houses to bring proposals on the broadcasting rights but there is no stipulated time frame on the submission of the proposal,” he said. He, however, declined to commit himself on the meeting which is scheduled for tomorrow.
