The Community Shield in England is the official season opener for football lovers in Nigeria but it wasn’t a great start on Sunday, August 5.

Nigerians were left stranded with nowhere to watch the game between Manchester City and Chelsea on Sunday as the major cable TV companies DSTV, Kwese and StarTimes had no broadcast right for it.

From viewing centre operators to bar owners to home consumers, Nigerians were left hanging with nowhere to watch.

Following the no-show from the pay-TV companies, there has been confusion over where Nigerians can watch their favourite leagues and competitions around Europe.

Pulse Sports have confirmed the competitions that the three Pay-Tv companies have broadcast rights to. .
