AFCON 2024: How to watch the quarter-finals online

The 2024 edition of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) is currently underway and last night saw South Africa’s Bafana Bafana pick up a 2 – 0 victory over Morocco as the underdog team now heads into the quarter-finals of the continent-wide football tournament.

According to the fixtures of the quarter-finals bracket, South Africa’s next challenge is Cape Verde on 3rd February at 22:00 SAST. Other games in the bracket include Nigeria taking on Angola, the Democratic Republic of Congo versus Guinea, and Mali taking on Cote d’Ivoire.

Bafana Bafana is looking to repeat their 1996 victory in the AFCON, which they won in their home country, under new coach Hugo Broos. The team received significant support on social media when they looked to knock out Morocco. “Bafana Bafana” was trending on X most of last evening.

A 57th-minute goal from Evidence Makgopa and a final free kick from Teboho Mokoena shocked Morocco at Laurent Pokou Stadium, in Cote d’Ivoire.

How to catch all the upcoming matches for the AFCON 2024:

If you’re looking to catch the rest of the AFCON games, including South Africa’s next turn against Cape Verde, there are a few ways to watch online.

The first and most obvious will be on SABC Plus, the national broadcaster’s streaming service, which is showcasing all the AFCON games for free. SABC struck a late deal with the Confederation of African Football to broadcast all the games.

Alternatively, you can head to the streaming platform to catch up on all the games you may have already missed, like Mali vs. South Africa and Namibia vs. South Africa.

If you already have a subscription, or are looking for wider options to stream sports, you can grab a sub to DStv Stream. There are a number of subscriptions available that offer different content.

For example, for DStv Stream Premium you get all of MultiChoice’s sports catalogue, including the AFCON 2024 games, as well as all available content. However, this goes for R799 per month so it’s quite pricey.

For less at R549 and R399 per month, you can grab a sub to DStv Compact Plus and DStv Compact, respectively, which offer local and international football streaming. We would also mention Showmax here, but the new version no longer carries live sport.

If you’re looking to watch AFCON 2024 games and you’re outside of South Africa, you can do so with a VPN. You can check out the likes of Nord VPN, ExpressVPN and many others, which will let you change your server location to South Africa in order to watch the games for free on SABC Plus.
