Ghana Premier League (GPL) spokesperson Ibrahim Sannie Daara says there are good signs that the competition will soon land a major sponsor.
The GPL has been without a title sponsor since 2015, when First Capital Bank withdrew their patronage.
The league has since struggled to attract corporate interest and the legal wrangles which delayed the start of the new season have not helped matters.
However, the GPL spokesperson says the competition’s strong presence on social media could turn things in their favour.
“Two days before the league started, you would have noticed that on all the trends on social media we were trending very very positively,” Sannie Daara said.
“I'm happy to announce that after day one, day two and even off the days of football matches we still trend on Twitter. So let me announce to you that we intend to continue on this fold and would also seek your support in this area.
“We want to you continue hashtagging GHPL on for all your tweets and messages on social media. And if it is particular to a matchday we would tag it with the match day or match week.
“Let me announce to you that as a result of we are having a lot of corporate interest in the league.
“We won’t be able to say anything at the moment. We have gone to a lot of marketing agents and it is looking very positive for us.”
