StarTimes still committed to contract with GFA – Akorfa Djankui

Ms Akorfa Djakui, Head of Marketting at StarTimes Ghana Limited has allayed fears that, her outfit would terminate their contract with the Ghana Football Association (GFA), following the recent crisis that has hit the football controlling body in the country.

The government on Thursday took steps to dissolve the GFA, 24 hours after the public viewing of an undercover investigative documentary by Anas Aremeyaw Anas dubbed ‘Number 12’ on Thursday, June 7 in Accra.

Speaking in an interview with the GNA Sports, Ms Djankui said that, the recent crisis in the GFA would not in any way affect the relationship between the two parties.

She noted that her outfit would be ready to work with any administration as they remained calm waiting for things to be resolved at the GFA.

“We are the official broadcast partners of the GFA and so we do not think we should be affected in anyway. Indeed we had a partnership with the GFA, we had a contract which I’m sure is available, the probing might go as far as checking what we signed with them and so on,” Ms Djankui noted.

“We believe that if the Ghana Football is going to be overhauled, then we need to position ourselves to partner whoever would be in charge if the FA would come back. If some other bodies would be put in place to regulate football in Ghana we are ever ready to support Football in Ghana,” he added.


StarTimes are a major investor in the local game having signed a ten year broadcasting contract with the GFA in 2016 worth over $17 million.
