The Ghanaian Premier League has been ranked the 87th strongest in the world for the year 2008 by the International Federation of Football History and Statistics.
The top-flight league is also rated 13th on the continent with Tunisian League ranked 26th in world and number one in Africa.
Ghanaian champions Asante Kotoko qualified for the money stage of last year’s Caf Confederation Cup, the continent’s second prestigious club competition.
The locally-based players also qualified for the inaugural African Nations Championship in Ivory Coast.
The English Premier League is the strongest national league in the world followed by Italy, Argentina and Spain.
The world ranking of the strongest national leagues has been determined annually by the IFFHS since 1991 on the basis of all national (championship, FA cup) and (inter)continental results of the clubs.
This principle has proved to be a very sensitive and objective indicator.
