Which DStv Channels will Show the 2021-2022 UEFA Champions League?

UEFA Champions League logo

The UEFA Champions League (UCL) experience returned on the 14th of September, 2021. As the custom is for DStv, all the games will be aired live on selected SuperSport channels. This article contains the TV programming details on all the Champions League matches, including exact times and the DStv channels that will show the matches.

The UEFA Champions League channels on DStv are SuperSport Grandstand (201), SuperSport Premier League (203), Supersport PSL (202), SuperSport Variety 1 (206) & 2 (207), and SuperSport La Liga (204). Other sports channels will only be able to show repeats and highlights.

The packages that will show the Champions League include DStv PremiumCompact Plus, and Compact. You can also watch it on Family but you will only be getting one match per week.

As usual, most of the matches will be played from around 5:00 PM (WAT/GMT +1) which is also 6:00 PM (CAT/SAST) in the evening. From September 14, DStv will bring you live matches beginning with the match between Sevilla and Salzburg.

There are lots of top teams on show, which also means we will be having some very exciting clashes right from the start of this competition. If you are using DStv, you are in the right place. All the fixtures and times will be covered here and on our Facebook page also.

Here are some interesting encounters you should look out for in this season’s UCL:

  • Group A: This promises to be a very exciting group right from match day 1 and the matches you should look out for include PSG/Manchester City, PSG/ RB Leipzig, and RB Leipzig/Manchester City.
  • Group B: The match to look out for in this group is obviously the Liverpool/Atletico Madrid match as the reds will be looking to get their revenge against the Spanish side.
  • Group D: The stand out fixture in this group will certainly be the matches between Real Madrid and Inter Milan.
  • Group E: Bayern Munich/Barcelona is the clash to look out for. It’s kind of hard to forget the 8-2 defeat Barcelona got the last time they face Bayern Munich and the FCB fans will be hoping Koeman’s side can do something to get some respect back.
  • Group H: Now that Allegri is back at Juve, we are expecting to see a very tough Juventus side this season. The UCL fixture to look out for in this group will be the Chelsea/Juventus match.

Which team do you think will win this one? It’s too bad Arsenal did not make it to the Champions League again this year and we are not sure when they will return. Here is my prediction: Manchester City will bounce back to win the trophy for the first time. You don’t think so? Drop your predictions in the comments session.
