Described as the most widely seen South African TV series, it is rated as the number 1 kid's series in South Africa and on Israel's Zoom channel; this year it also reached the number 2 spot on Disney Italy.

The France feed, which includes Belgium, Switzerland and Luxembourg, joins the 130-strong territories where the series has aired over the last three years. It airs on Disney across Africa, the Middle East, Greece, Italy, Turkey, Serbia and South East Asia. It will begin airing on Disney across Latin America in May 2014. It airs on Nickelodeon in India and on various free-to-air channels in Israel, Poland, Romania and across Latin America

Supa Strikas is based on the popular comic of the same name, which has 600,000 copies published monthly in You, Drum and Huisgenoot. The comic is sponsored by KFC. Strika Entertainment producer Richard Morgan-Grenville adds, "It's fantastic that this story with South African roots continues to reach a wider and more diverse audience."
