The Ghana Broadcasting Corporation(GBC), which owns television stations like GTV, GTV-sports etc in a press release has express disappointment in Ghana Football Association(GFA) decision to outsource the television rights holder of the premier league and FA cup to Startimes Ghana.
In their press statement signed by the director of corporate affairs, Ms. Maamle Asare, GBC noted that they as an entity, presented a superior bid of USD 5,500,000 to the GFA than their competitor Startimes Ghana who offered USD 5,250,000.
According to the statement, GBC also noted that, they had held the premier league after the number 12 expose when the league was not attractive and showed the special league to Ghanaians at their own expense and were shocked that the FA could neglect all that and given the rights to Startimes Ghana.
The broadcasting corporation also noted that, a survey conducted by Africa Centre, adjudged GBC to be having a whopping 56% market share of the premier league and wondered why GFA will neglect all that and give the right to a company which wasn’t even in the report
