2014–15 First Capital Plus Bank Premier League

The First Capital Plus Bank Premier League is the top professional football division of the football league system in Ghana. Formed in 1956, the league is organized by the Ghana Football Association and was ranked as the 11th best league in Africa by the IFFHS from 2001-2010,[1] and the league was also ranked 65th in the IFFHS' Best Leagues of the World ranking, in the 1st Decade of the 21st Century (2001-2010).[2] On 4 February 2014, the league became known as the First Capital Plus Bank Premier League for sponsorship reasons.[3][4][5][6] It has been dominated by Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak.
