Ghana Premier League needs Proper Attention to Attract Sponsorships – Sam George


Hon. Samuel Nartey George, Member of Parliament (MP) for Ningo Prampram has entreated Ghana Football Association to do the needful to attract sponsorship for Ghana Leagues.

The Ghana League has strove to attract sponsorship following the exit of Kwesi Nyantakyi, Former GFA President. It has been difficult getting a headline sponsor after the termination of the Zylofon Cash deal occurred some years ago.

Companies who would like to invest their money in the league think twice because of some unattractive games and match-fixing in the league.

The lawmaker said that the GFA president and his workers should work tirelessly to know how to secure headline deal to make our league get much attention in the world.

“I would support calls for investments into the Premier League on one condition, that if the FA would do the right things, and the right things mean we can’t invest money in a league where the referees are substandard, referees make all kinds of dubious calls,” Mr. George said as reported by GNA.

“You can’t just throw money into a league where at times people are fixing matches, you can see that something fishy and funny is going on, the league needs to be cleaned up to attract investors,” he said.

“When you have world-class officiating when you have proper structures at the GFA, it would automatically attract investments, for example, the penalty awarded against Hearts of Oak  against Kotoko, how is that a penalty.
