The top-flight will soon be beamed live on television as the football association continues process to announce rights holders

Ghana Premier League and other leagues organised by Ghana FA will soon have new television rights owners as the process to select the best company continues.

Following the mutual agreement to terminate StarTimes’ ten-year deal with GFA, the football body is now in the market for a new contract and AshesGyamera.com can report that Supersport who previously had the rights are now leading the race.

Although, StarTimes, Fox Sports and Ghana Television have also made a bid together with three other companies according to reports, Supersport may eventually be named the new rights holders.

“The Ghana Football Association wishes to inform its stakeholders that at the end of the deadline for submission of bids for Television Broadcast Rights of the various GFA-organised competitions, the GFA received bids from seven organisations for the television rights,” a GFA statement read.

“The GFA has since been evaluating the bids and it will announce a decision next week.

“For Radio Commentary Rights, the Association has decided to extend the period for expression of interest by radio stations to 5 p.m. on Tuesday December 31, 2019,” the statement added.

AshesGyamera.com understands that Supersport may collaborate with GTV Sports + when they win the bid in order to get the game closer to Ghanaians since GTV is free to air and doesn’t require monthly payments to view.
