SuperSport Nigeria, the Pay TV channel on DSTV, has commenced the auditioning in search of a pidgin commentator to run the Glo Premier League.

Speaking of the novel initiative, the General Manager, SuperSport West Africa, Felix Awogu, said the idea will be the first of its kind in Nigeria and the winner will provide commentary on the Glo Premier League, which now boasts several stars in the Super Eagles.

He said that research has shown that football fans do not only want to watch the game alone on television, but to also enjoy the commentary in a language they can understand very well.

He disclosed that the auditioning would hold in two states, Port-Harcourt, August 23rd and 24th, 2013 and Lagos, September 6th and 7th, 2013 while the Grand Finale also holds in Lagos on October 4th, 2013 as entry is open to Nigerians above the age of 21 years.
