olympic games tokyo 2020

Following the addition of the UEFA Euro 2020 earlier this year, Showmax Pro subscribers across the continent will soon be able to live stream hundreds of Olympic events on the streaming service from 23 July – 8 August 2021.  

The Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 were postponed to 2021 as a result of the Covid pandemic. While World War I and II led to three Olympics being canceled completely – in 1916, 1940, and 1944  this is the first time that a Summer Olympic Games has been postponed since 1896.

The Tokyo 2020 event is going to look very different from previous editions, with strict rules in place around mask-wearing, social distancing, and the number of fans who may attend events. There will be no public viewing areas in the host city, and international spectators are not allowed

For athletes, the Olympics represents the peak of their sporting careers, the culmination of a lifetime of dedication to a single pursuit, and the chance to receive recognition on an international stage. While the crowds may not be cheering the athletes on from the grandstands, millions around the globe will be watching as stars like Wayde van Niekerk, Blessing Okagbare, Almaz Ayana, and the Ivorian men’s football team do battle. 

We are thrilled to bring all the action to our Showmax Pro subscribers to stream wherever they are, and we’ll be backing our African athletes every step of the way, says Yolisa Phahle, CEO for MultiChoice Connected Video.
