UniBank nets Black Stars renewal

Global financial firm UniBank has renewed its key sponsorship agreement with the Ghanaian Football Association (GFA) for a further three years.

The deal, which will run until the end of 2019, is worth US$1.2 million, and will see the company receive branding at all of the national men’s soccer team’s home fixtures, on their training kit, and on official digital and TV-based broadcasts.

The initial three-year deal, which was signed in 2013, expired in November of this year, but a renewed agreement was announced by UniBank executive director Owusu Ansah-Anwere ahead of the men’s team’s recent 2-0 defeat to Egypt.

The Black Stars, managed by former Chelsea boss Avram Grant, currently sit third in Group E of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) qualifiers for the 2018 Fifa World cup, behind leaders Egypt and second-placed Uganda.
