“Yes, there was a third party in the deal (Proton Sports), they actually brokered the deal and are entitled to 20% of the deal,” George Afriyie told Nyirah FM.
“But we are looking forward in making sure the money is used for what we have actually planned”
StarTimes holds exclusive rights to broadcast all matches in the Ghana Premier League, FA Cup, Women’s League, Colts football and Beach Soccer starting from next season.
