Report: Why Ghana FA lost R144m Sponsor

A shock report has suggested that the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has lost a sponsor worth R144 million, and the reason has now seemingly been revealed.

African Star Applauded For Deliberate Own Goals

According to Football Ghana, the Ghana Premier League will not have a headline sponsor for the 2021/22 season anymore due to recent ongoings in the country.

While it was without a sponsor last season, it is claimed that they were said to have all but secured a partnership worth $5 million (R144 million), but this deal has reportedly been lost after allegations of match-fixing in the country.

This is according to Pure FM, which suggested that the league has struggled for a long time to secure a headline sponsor due to hooliganism at stadiums across the division.

What are the match-fixing claims?

Last month, a Ghana-based defender by the name of Hashmin Musah scored two intentional own goals during a league match, leading to suggestions that the result had been rigged.

Inter Allies, whom Musah represents, lost that game 7-0 to Ashanti Gold, with the defender scoring twice in the final 12 minutes of the encounter.

Following that match, Musah claimed that he had become aware of a bet that was made against his team and decided to spoil it.

"After the game, my technical team commended me for spoiling the bet they had staked," he said, according to Citisportonline.

"I promised my coach that if he allows me to play from the bench, I will spoil the bet. And after the game, my team congratulated me.

"I heard it in our hotel that a bet had been made for a correct scoreline of 5-1 against my club Inter Allies. I decided to spoil that bet because I don't condone betting."
