Ghana Broadcasting Corporation, GBC has questioned why the Ghana Football Association award Television Rights of the Ghana Premier League to StarTimes.
Yesterday the Ghana Football Association released a statement awarding the Television Right of the Ghana Premier League and FA Cup to StarTimes in a 5 years deal worth $1,050,000 a year.
The GFA defended this decision, saying StarTimes offered the best deal monetary-wise.
GBC in a statement has exposed the GFA on why they opted for StarTimes instead of the Nation’s broadcaster.

According to GBC, they offered more money than StarTimes offered which is $1,100,000. They made another solid point that unlike StarTimes, they offer free nationwide coverage to every home in Ghana which can help up interest in the local game.
