Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates fans will have football withdrawal symptoms from May to August. What are their viewing options aside from Wimbledon, Euro 2024, the 2024 Paris Olympics and T20 World Cup?


Djokovic wants Roland Garros glory, on the road to Wimbledon

Novak Djokovic enters most tournaments as the favourite but he’s got several big names breathing down his neck. 2024 hasn’t been the Serbian’s greatest year but he’ll line up at the 2024 French Open as one of the favourites. Jannik Sinner, Carlos Alcaraz, Casper Ruud and others will beg to differ. The season’s second grand slam is staged in Paris from 25 May to 09 June.

Wimbledon takes centre stage in July

Strawberries and cream, white clothes and grass court tennis will be the order of the day in London from 1-14 July. Carlos Alcaraz will defend his crown after beating Novak Djokovic over five sets last year. Unseeded Czech player Marketa Vondrousova beat Tunisia’s Ons Jabeur in last year’s women’s final.

When is the T20 World Cup

02 June to 29 June. The Proteas won’t be favourites but you never know.


When is Euro 2024?

14 June to 14 July. Italy is the defending champions after beating England in the Euro 2020 final on penalties.

When are the 2024 Paris Olympics?

26 July to 11 August. It’s another opportunity to watch random sports like curling, handball and archery and then forget about them again for another four years. Can team South Africa claim a few gold medals in the pool?


Kaizer Chiefs draw 0-0 with Polokwane, the race for MTN8 goes to the final day

Chiefs could only manage a 0-0 draw with Polokwane City in their final home game of the campaign. Their place inside the top eight isn’t yet confirmed, but the club face already-relegated Cape Town Spurs on the final day. A win there would secure MTN8 football next term. Outgoing club skipper Itumeleng Khune made a cameo substitute appearance against Polokwane, presumably a goodbye gesture from the club.
