LISTEN JAN 4, 2020

Kurt Okraku, the president of the Ghana Football Association has said the FA has not licenced any betting company on the local league.

The FA president stated that no betting company has been granted the license to undertake such activities.

“It’s one canker we’ve been fighting,” he told Joy FM.

According to him, the Association is taking legal actions against offenders as most betting companies have turned a deaf ear to their warnings.

The Ghana Football Association released a statement on the unauthorised placing of odds on Ghana Premier League matches by betting companies.

In the statement, it emphasised its status as the owner of all marketing, commercial and all rights associated with the League, as well as products (other competitions).

The statement warned that the GFA was going to take action against betting companies who placed odds on Ghana Premier League matches last weekend without authorisation.

“We’ve already made our intentions clear; we have advised, we have tried to engage but people are just not listening,” he said.
