The Ghana Football Association’s Executive Committee has decided to
make Radio Commentary Broadcast Rights available to all radio stations
in Ghana for non-cash considerations.
The rights will be offered to all radio stations who accept the GFA’s
conditions associated with the rights including promotion of the

LPMs) for the GFA, sponsors and partners of the competitions.
For management purposes, the GFA has also decided that it will offer
the rights to major media groups of companies based on the terms and
conditions associated with the rights.
For all other radio stations not affiliated to the major media
groups, the GFA will offer the same terms and conditions to them through
the major media groups. The GFA therefore reiterates that the rights
are available to every radio station in Ghana provided they accept the
terms and conditions through the major media groups or the GFA.
In instances where a radio station is not able to reach an agreement
with any of the major media groups, they can contact the Communications
Department of the GFA to link them with a partner media group provided
they are willing to accept all the conditions.

or sub-licensed to run commentaries on any of its products upon signing
of the relevant agreements by the media groups and their affiliates and
partners (any radio station that gets a sub-license from the media
Please note that there will be clauses in the agreement between GFA
and the major media groups which would ensure that the condition given
to the major media groups by the GFA will be same as what they will give
to any partner radio stations.
