StarTimes deal is a useless one- Bechem United CEO

Published on: 22 July 2021

Kingsley Owusu-Achau, the CEO of Bechem United, has stated that the deal arranged with StarTimes by the GFA is a useless one.

StarTimes currently hold the broadcasting rights to the Ghana Premier League after entering into an agreement with the GFA at the start of the 2019/20 league campaign.

Although the GPL teams earned some money from the deal, Owusu-Achau regards the sum to be too small.

“I will call on my colleagues to reject the startimes deal, the money they give us is laughable," he told Angel FM.

GFA should cancel the deal and open for new bids

The deal is useless.. if they will increase their bid fine, but this peanut should be rejected”

The GPL 2020/21 season has now ended with Hearts of Oak taking the crown.
