The deal would see Goil Ghana as the official fuel partner of the GFA as they seek to help develop football in Ghana.
Mr. Kwame Osei Prempeh, the Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of Goil Ghana speaking at the short event expressed his excitement about coming on board to develop local football and also support GFA’s agenda to bring back the passion Ghanaians have for football.
He stated that aside Goil providing GFA with US$200,000 worth of fuel, the GFA on its part would also purchase an additional $100,000 in fuel during the two-year period.
“We believe this will assist a great deal in helping the association and in particular the local clubs, resolve some of their fuel difficulties,” he added.
Mr Kurt Okraku, the President of the GFA thanked Goil Ghana for believing in the football body and said it had been the vision of the association to get an oil company onboard to sponsor the GFA with fuel as they seek to develop grassroots football in Ghana.
According to him, this had come at the right time as the association was focused on bringing back night football in Ghana.
“If we have a clear strategy, if we have a clear support system like the one you have offered us, I believe our appearances at the World Cup will not end in the year 2022,” he said.
He stated that the support from Goil Ghana would go a long way not to only benefit the senior side, but also from the Access Bank Division One League and the Malta Guinness Women’s Premier League clubs who were mostly deprived.
The GFA president thanked the new partners and urged other stakeholders to also come onboard as the GFA continue to improve the level of football in Ghana.
Mr Okraku said Football was the only way of uniting Ghanaians as one people, hence the need to stay together in this period.
Mr Daniel Laryea, a board member of Goil Ghana also said the partnership with GFA was the best way to put Goil on the map.
