GFA approach absurd, primitive and backward - Kotoko

The most successful club in Ghana Premier League, Asante Kotoko has served the Ghana Football Association with a letter. The club is threatening to withdraw from the collective Premier League TV rights sold to Star Times.

Two-time African champions have been at war with the Ghana Football Association. Following a heated argument over the club’s attempt to film its league match against Eleven Wonders. Their intention was to film the match for education purpose (performance analysis) in Accra on Sunday.

The Porcupine Warriors were held by match official due to their attempt to filming the game. Asante Kotoko have procured football videoing technology and they wanted to film their first game with it. They argue that GFA says their activity infringed on the broadcasting agreement with the Chinese Broadcasting company, StarTimes. The Porcupine Warriors threatened to abandon the match.  Asante Kotoko, the biggest club in Ghana ultimately had their way.

The Ghana Football Association was quick to issue a warning to the club about any future attempt. Kotoko on the other hold no punches have drawn an immediate reply to the GFA.

They said “In your letter, you stated that filming of matches infringes on your contractual obligation with StarTimes Ghana. We wish to request a copy of the contract between the GFA and StarTimes to enable us to ascertain. Our rights and obligations and the relevant breaches with regards to clubs filming their matches,”.

They said they would not be in a position to honor any obligations towards StarTimes. Asante Kotoko said that cannot honor obligations without knowing their rights”.

They continued by saying they wish to let it known that GFA decision to stop clubs from filming match for educational purposes is with due respect arbitrary and against the provision of the GPL.
