PLB Chairman lament on the lack of sponsorship for GPL

Published on: 27 February 2018

Ashford Tettey-Oku, who is the Chairman of the Premier League Board is not happy with the lack of sponsorship for the Ghana Premier League.

The 2017/18 Ghana Premier League season will kick off this weekend, March 4 without a major headline sponsor.

Ahead of the sponsor-less league campaign, PLB capo Tettey-Oku stated how it has negatively affected his outfit though he remains defiant of securing a sponsor very soon.

"I have been particularly worried for all these years thus running a league without a headline sponsor but the GFA are taking steps to get a headline sponsor very soon," the soft-spoken boss told

"It has not been easy because if it were that easy we could have gotten one by now, so let's keep our options open and I believe when there is one, the GFA will announce," he added.

This will be the third consecutive seasons the league body has failed to acquire sponsor for the top flight league.
