The Kurt Okraku-led Ghana Football Association (GFA) is set to secure a new headline sponsor for the country’s top-flight league in the coming days.

This revelation was made by GFA Communications Director Henry Asante Twum in an interview on Starr FM’s Weekend Sports show Saturday.

“In respect of a headline sponsor for the Ghana Premier League, negotiations are far advanced with a prospective sponsor.

“I can even tell you we are 70% or 80% complete with negotiations and we are hopeful by the commencement of the second round of the league we would have a headline sponsor,” he told host Benjamin Yamoah.

Henry Asante Twum, who recently assumed the position of the communications director of the Football Association, further stated the preparedness of the GFA to put in every measure to make the Ghana League attractive to the business world in Ghana and beyond.

The Ghana Premier League has struggled to have and keep a headline sponsor after deals with Telecom giants Globacom, First Capital Plus Bank and Zylofon Cash were abrogated for various reasons.

The 2019/season has been in session since late December 2019 without a title sponsor.
