We’re ready to sponsor Black Stars again – Goldfields

The Executive Vice President of Goldfields West Africa, Alfred Baku says his outfit is keen on sponsoring the Black Stars again, five years after parting ways with the senior national team.

According to Baku, they will quickly jump into this marriage with the Ghana FA if they are approached by the football governing body.

The former sponsors of the Black Stars in 2012 failed to renew their six-year partnership deal which was worth over 15 million dollars.

.There were reports that they decided to pull out of the deal due to financial challenges but Baku says that was never the case.

Speaking to Starr Sports, the Executive Vice President of Goldfields West Africa Alfred Baku maintained their doors are open to work again with the GFA if they are contacted.

“It was just because others were knocking on their doors to come in and they indicated that to us,” Baku told Starr Sports.

“They felt that we had been on the seat for five to six years which was time to move on…Never say never, if they approach us why not, we will listen to them and then we will see whatever support we can give maybe not in the same capacity but in a different capacity.”
