The versifier of the volley, the balled-monger of the beautiful game, and the wordsmith of world football, Peter Drury is the face of SuperSport’s new football season campaign.
A commentator since 1998, Drury has commentated on football’s greatest stage, the FIFA World Cup final, as well as many a Champions League and English Premier League matches.
Renowned the world over for his iconic verses in some of football’s greatest moments, he will for the first time headline a marketing campaign.
Not one for the limelight, Drury, who describes himself as “a man who shouts footballer’s names for a living”, narrates a piece which hypes fans up for the upcoming season.
Off the back of a gobsmacking 2018/19 season which saw thrilling upsets and enthralling title races, the spot makes fans feel the way they do when watching live football.
The 2019/20 season already has fans salivating and transfer talk has tongues wagging, with big-name players like Eden Hazard, Neymar and Matthijs de Ligt already making waves.
The new season kicks off on August 4 with the mouth-watering Community Shield encounter between the champions of Europe, Liverpool, and the champions of England, Manchester City.
“When it comes to delivering the best quality football, many soccer fans know to look no further than the World of Champions,” said the CEO of SuperSport Gideon Khobane.
