The Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC) says it is disappointed and shocked over the handing over of the Television Rights Holder of the Ghana Premier League (GPL) And The FA Cup to StarTimes.

Reacting to a press statement released by the Ghana Football Association on 8th January 2020 which said StarTimes emerged winners of the competitive bidding process after the GFA accepted their offer — the best among the other bids, the GBC says, it is certain it put in a bid that was superior to what StarTimes is said to have submitted.

A statement signed by the Director of Corporate Affairs of GBC, Mamle Asare says the GFA published on its website that, StarTimes offered to pay UDS 5,250,000 which comes up to USD 1,050,000 annually whilst GBC made a financial offer of USD 1,100,000 annually.

“GBC wishes to put it on public record that the national broadcaster and the local TV Consortium have been treated unfairly and unjustly. The GFA decision will gravely impact on Ghanaians’ access to the Ghana Premier League and FA Cup live games on Free-to-Air (FTA) broadcast” the statement said.
