The media is been asked by official right holders of the Ghana Premier League StarTimes to pay an amount of Gh 50,000 before they can broadcast the matches via radio or television.
The Public Relations Officer for StarTimes, Eli Kondoh in an interview with the media says if the stations pay for the rights it will help them focus more on the positives aspects of the league as well as help in promoting the league.
“We delayed in communicating to the media because of the injunction on the league but since the green light was given to start the league we had no option than to come out with our release.
“Matches are not aired free anywhere in the world, so any media house who wants to associate itself with the brand needs to be affiliated to us.
“If stations pay for the courage right they will talk well about the product than saying all sort of ill comments about the product.
“Each station has to pay Ghc 50,000.00 for the season and the breakdown is Ghc 1,700.00 per week , he added.
