Vice Chairman of the Ghana Premier League committee, Jesse Agyapong has disclosed that his outfit are finding it difficult securing a title sponsor for the competition because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Jesse and his team were confident of landing a sponsorship deal before March, however, the outbreak of the deadly disease in the country has thwarted their efforts.
The league was cancelled in June, and plans are underway to start the new season in October.
“We had a break on a lot of things following the outbreak of Covid-19. For at least for five, six corporate organizations’ we have spoken to so far, their willingness to engage was there but unfortunately for us, Covid reared its head,” he said on Asempa FM.
Now, the good thing is president [Kurt Okraku] toured some corporate institutions last month and the marketing team are also making moves.
With the freeing up of the economy after the lockdown, I’m very sure that should the game resume the sponsors who were willing to come with us as at that time will still come back, “he added.
The GFA is confident of starting the new season in October.
