Ghana public broadcaster, athletics body acquire IAAF Championship rights

The Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC) and the Ghana Athletics Association (GAA) have jointly acquired exclusive free-to-air rights in the country to the 2019 IAAF World Championships.

The inventory comprises the live world feed alongside a daily highlights programme focusing on the performances of African athletes during the championship, which takes place in Doha, Qatar from September 27 to October 10.

GBC will broadcast the property on its GTV Sports+ channel.

The rights were sold by the TV Media Sports agency.

TV Media Sports acquired the 2019-23 free-to-air distribution rights across sub-Saharan Africa (excluding South Africa) in March from the competition’s international marketer ESPN Media Distribution.
