Ghanaians consider Manchester United F.C. the best international sports club when it comes to quality and deem Cristiano Ronaldo the best international athlete, according to a QUDAL survey in Ghana
Asante Kotoko S.C. was voted the No. 1 Ghanan sports club, with Asamoah Gyan voted the highest quality Ghanaian athlete
Ghanaians view Manchester United F.C. as the absolute best international sports club and Asante Kotoko S.C. as the best Ghanaian sports club, regardless of which sport, according to the first QUDAL - QUality meDAL survey conducted in the African country.
The innovative QUDAL survey has provided novel insight into how Ghanaian internet users perceive sport, sports stars and sports clubs - both in their country and internationally. The research was conducted by the Swiss organization ICERTIAS (www.icertias.com) via an on-line panel.
The QUDAL - QUality meDAL survey measures exclusively quality. Instead of popularity, the QUDAL survey gauges only people's perceptions, experiences and satisfaction with the quality of products or services - in this instance: sports subjects, individuals, organizations or clubs.
In the mentioned QUDAL survey for Ghana, the most votes for highest quality went to Manchester United F.C. (category: international sports club), Asante Kotoko S.C. (category: Ghanaian sports club), footbal player Cristiano Ronaldo (category: international athlete) and Asamoah Gyan (category: Ghanaian athlete).
The survey was performed through a web questionnaire based on the innovative DEEPMA-CAWI method (Deep Mind Awareness - Computer Assisted Web Interviewing).
Asante Kotoko S.C. and Manchester United F.C. voted best sport clubs
The citizens of Ghana were asked within the survey which sports club they percieved as the absolute best, regardless of which sport. The majority of the respondents answered Manchester United F.C.
Asked about which Ghanaian sports club they viewed as the leading in quality, regardless of which sport, the majority of respondents opted for Asante Kotoko S.C.
Most appreciated athletes are football players Ronaldo and Gyan
When asked about the leading international athlete, the survey takers clearly identified two superstars of sport; Cristiano Ronaldo received the most votes, becoming the international No. 1 in terms of quality, while Asamoah Gyan won in a landslide over his competitors and was declared by the Ghanaians as the absolute best athlete of their nation at the moment.
