Ghana Football Association [GFA] president Kurt Okraku has pledged that the organisation is “working tirelessly” to secure sponsorship for the 2021-22 Ghana Premier League [GPL] season.

The recently-concluded 2020-21 campaign – which saw Hearts of Oak claim the championship for the first time in more than a decade – was played without a title sponsor.

The new season is scheduled to begin in October and Okraku has promised that it will have a headline sponsor before kicking off.

“We are working tirelessly to secure a headline sponsor for the Premier League and the Division One League,” said the GFA boss, as quoted by Football Ghana.

“We tried last season but I am hopeful it will work this time around.

“I am only pleading that we all play our role well because the FA is doing their best and the media must also do the same.

“But if we continue to do the wrong things, it means we will struggle to get what we want.”

The GFA has, amongst others, sponsorship deals with Melcom, Macron, MTN and Woodin.
