Managing Director of Accra Hearts of Oak Mark Noonan has revealed the denial of a copy of the media right sponsorship deal with Star Times for the premier league clubs was the very day he sensed corruption at the Ghana Football Association (GFA).

The Accra Hearts of Oak Managing Director told Kumasi based radio FOX 97.9 FM on the famous Number 12 Exposé by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas and Tiger eye PI.

The investigative piece which was premiered on June 6, 2018, in Accra and later to the other parts of the country, uncovered corrupt practices which included the former President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), referees and other football officials.

"When the CEO of one of the most important premier league clubs in the country can't get a copy of the media right deal from the FA, I knew something wasn't right", Noonan told FOX 97.9 FM.

"It's amazing to me that if a friend like Ivan Gazidis at Arsenal (Arsenal CEO) asks for the media right deal for the premier league."

"he will be furnished with that by his week and the fact that I couldn't get a copy of that told me something wasn't right, and obviously there is a lot that's not right and we need to come together as a country and fix it", Noon stated.
