Ghana Football Association’s (GFA) Executive Council (Exco) member, Nana Oduro Sarfo says is not the mandate the FA to get sponsorship for the country’s top-flight league.
The Exco member has therefore entreated the clubs to secure sponsorship for themselves and not depend on the association.
His comments was in reaction to clubs complaining about playing the past season without a headline sponsor.
“Running a football club is a business for you and your family and it involves money. GFA sponsorship is just a bonus for the clubs, they (Clubs) should look for their sponsorship,” Sarfo told OTEC FM
“Clubs should try and do things that will bring them sponsorship. It is good for the GFA to bring sponsorship but it is not mandatory. The club owners should employ marketers and I believe they will get there” He added
“I don’t think Liverpool’s sponsors were brought to them by the EPL, they fought for them. What the FA can do for the clubs are TV and Commercial sponsorships. Look for strategic partners or sell your team if you can’t run it” He concluded
