You know, going in for football betting in Ghana had never been easier ever before. Nowadays, probably everyone owns a mobile phone or at least an entry-level PC, uses the Internet regularly, watches football matches online, keeps an eye on topical media, YouTube channels or professional blogs.  

Of course, the impact of technology on the possibilities for football betting in Ghana is huge. Still, it might be interesting for you to know how that all began. Let’s start a journey to the past, and find out about sports betting in Ghana before the world wide web changed everything.

Pre-Regulation Stage

Previously to the year 2006, the gambling sector remained out of regulation in Ghana. Ghanaian people felt it okay to use the services of bookmakers from abroad and those located in offshore zones without legal punishment, while businesses didn’t require any licensing and permissions. 

At that time, the most preferred betting choice was to register the accessible bet portal from Britain or Europe. The sites of that kind were not too numerous in the beginning of the 21st century. So, not many Ghanaians were going in for sports betting through official and reliable channels. 

The Ghana Gaming Commission

The Ghana Gambling Commission started functioning in 2006. It became the appropriate legislative body for gambling and betting businesses (like online casino sites and bookmaking companies). Since then, it has been actually regulating all the Ghanaian gambling activities except lotteries. The NLA (National Lottery Authority) is the separate organization managing them in the country. 

Ghana and Internet Spreading

Despite there exists a quite widespread delusion, football has been known to people of Ghana long before the country gained its independence. The primary mark telling of this game in the country is dated back to the late 19th century. British colonists brought football with them back then. 

Speaking of football betting in particular, its popularity couldn’t raise before Ghanaians began purchasing their smartphones massively in mid to late 2000s. First, several companies from Britain entered the market, and soon their competitors started appearing here as the clients from Ghana became interested in their services.
