Kotoko striker Kwame Opoku urges GFA to package the league to attract investors

Published on: 19 May 2020

Asante Kotoko striker Kwame Opoku has backed the Ghana Football Association to find a way to package the Premier League to attract investors.

The Football Association is struggling to attract a title sponsor for the topflight since the expiration of the contract with Telecommunications giants Globacom Limited.

Currently, the suspended 2019/20 league season has two category sponsors. NASCO takes care of the Man of the Match, Player of the Match, and Coach of the Month awards schemes while StarTimes snapped up the TV broadcast rights.

"I do not agree to the notion that Ghanaian players or clubs do not play beautiful football," said Opoku.

"The players here are very good. It is the league that needs to improve in branding.

"Our games are nice and competitive and can be compared to a lot of countries in and out of Africa. Authorities only need to find a way to package the league well."

He added, "There are people who are trained in that field. We see a lot of them doing a lot of work for corporate institutions. We need to get such people to help."

Kwame Opoku joined the Porcupine Warriors on a three-year deal from Division One side Nkoranza Warriors SC.

The highly-rated forward will be available for selection during the second round of the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League season which has been halted due to the coronavirus pandemic.
