The Ghana Football Association’s sponsorship agreement with Access Bank, one of Africa’s top financial institutions, has been extended through the end of the 2023–24 season.
The Ghana Football Association has revealed that Division One League headline sponsor Access Bank has extended its contract.
Due to the Football Association’s pleasure, the quickly expanding bank has extended its sponsorship of the Division One League for an additional year.
Jamil Maraby, the GFA’s director of marketing, paid the MD of Access Bank, Olumide Olatunji, a courtesy visit and informed him that the bank would be continuing its sponsorship for an additional year. He claimed that strengthening football, the national pastime, is consistent with the Bank’s strategic goal of construction.
“We continue to invest in football and particularly the DOL because that is the pipeline for developing talents. Our goal is to see these talents evolve into national and international footballers who will in turn give back to impact their communities,” he explained.
In her remarks, the Group Head of Retail Banking, Matilda Asante-Asiedu touched on the Bank’s commitment to offer superior value to the GFA ecosystem.
“As a Bank, we are positioned to offer superior banking services to the entire GFA ecosystem. As a partner of the GFA, we are interested in the total administration of football from player welfare, to facilities and financing for the administration of the game.
“Our solutions cut across Private Banking and lifestyle packages, reliable digital platforms and a raft of lending propositions for management & staff of GFA, players and the entire football value chain in Ghana.”
Speaking about the sponsorship, Jamil Maraby, Director of Marketing at the Ghana Football Association, claimed that Access Bank’s backing had a positive effect on the level of competition and fervor in the recently concluded DOL, which saw teams from Bofoakwa Tano FC, Nation’s FC, and Kpando Hearts of Lions advance to the Premier League.
He was certain that extending the contract by another year would rekindle the love for Ghana football among the football community.
“Thanks to the continued financial investments by Access Bank Ghana, we expect to see an uplift in facilities and development of football in Ghana.”
