A three-month invitation to the best of European football and other top-class sport programming began on 15 January when leading digital-to-home television service platform, GOtv, announced its “Top Up” offer.
The campaign, which runs till 15 April, offers active and disconnected subscribers, especially those on GOtv Plus, Value and Lite packages, the opportunity to be upgraded to GOtv MAX, which attracts a monthly subscription of N3, 200. Subscribers on the three packages will benefit from the offer when they pay a reduced fee of N2, 500, while GOtv “Tops Up” the remaining N700. GOtv Max subscribers can also take advantage of the offer and renew with N2,500.
The “Top Up” offer is an invitation to the high table of European football with its rich menu of La Liga, Serie A, Premier League, Emirates FA Cup and UEFA Champions League matches. GOtv MAX provides access to all the matches of the La Liga, the football competition with stars like Barcelona’s Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Phillipe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele; Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale and Sergio Ramos; as well as Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann and Diego Costa. It equally makes available to subscribers all the matches of the Italian Serie A, starring Cristiano Ronaldo, who is seeking to conquer Italy to add to his conquest of England and Spain.
Also, on the menu are select matches of the Premier League, the stomping ground of Mohammed Salah and Sadio Mane of Liverpool, Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero, Kevin de Bruyne, David Silva and Bernado Silva, as well as two of the world’s biggest managers, Jurgen Klopp of Liverpool and Pep Guardiola of Manchester City. The Emirates FA Cup, the world’s oldest club competition; and select matches of the UEFA Champions League, the world’s most prestigious club competition, provide an icing on the sporting cake.
As action from the second leg of the 2018/2019 European football season gets more intense, some teams are hunting hard to claim the ultimate glory of being crowned champions. However, some others are struggling to ensure that they are not relegated to the lower-tier league in Spain, Italy and England come the end of the season in May.
The race to be crowned England’s Premier League champions is in progress, as Liverpool chase their first league title since 1990. Hot on their heels are Manchester City, who are aiming to defend the title they won last season.
In the La Liga, Barcelona are seeking to turn their dominance into supremacy by defending the title. They remain in pole position, having earned 46 points from 20 games played so far. They are followed by the resilient Atletico Madrid, who are just five points behind. Also, the world’s biggest and most anticipated club match, the El Clasico between Barcelona and Real Madrid, will be aired live in March.
In Italy, Juventus hope to claim their eighth straight Serie A title. Juve are eight points clear of their nearest challenger, Napoli. Ronaldo, the club’s biggest acquisition, has continued his freakish goalscoring form in Italy. He leads the goal chart with 14 goals.
The UEFA Champions League, which resumes next month, offers mouth-watering clashes among Europe elite teams, as it enters its knockout phase. The Emirates FA Cup, reputed for its giant-killing thrills, the newly minted UEFA Nations League and the last rounds of the African Cup of Nations qualifiers make for a sumptuous dish of sport content on GOtv MAX.
