Many Zambian fans were left frustrated with the unannounced change in broadcast times which resulted in the pay-television switching to the match in the 39th minute.
In an apology released by SuperSport operations manager-Southern Africa Marlon Kananda, kick-off time was changed at the last minute and the rights holders did not communicate with Super Sport on time.
“SuperSport apologises for the delayed broadcast of the Algeria-Zambia World Cup qualifier last night. The kick-off time was changed at the 11th hour and the right holders failed to inform SuperSport of the change. Consequently, the schedule was not updated,” stated Kananda.
