Ghana: GBC, Metro TV And Kwese Partner To Broadcast the 2018 World Cup
As the world countdown to the most anticipated global spots event, Ghana Television (GTV) has entered into a partnership with Metro TV and Kwesé TV for the terrestrial rights (Free to Air) to the 2018 World Cup.
According to the Director of GTV Johnnie Aryeetey: “With this right, no other TV station in Ghana can broadcast the World Cup using the terrestrial platform except GTV, Metro TV and Kwese.” This partnership is the first time in the history of the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC) that the World Cup will air on three of its fixed TV channels.
Mr Aryeetey who was proud of this achievement said: “It took us months of planning and negotiations with the rights owners before we finally clinched the deal. Sponsors and any Ghanaian who wish to be associated with the broadcast of the World Cup could contact GBC or the other two stations. Our own Ghana Black Stars will not be playing in Russia, but Africa has five representatives in at the world cup, and we are happy to bring viewers the African connection. We will cheer for our big brother Nigeria who is there. Football fans are itching to see Mo Salah representing Egypt on the world stage. Other African nations like Senegal, Morocco and Tunisia, are all there, and this is why Africa is interested in the fast-approaching World Cup events.”
