The head coach of Great Olympics, Annor Walker described the deal as a pleasant surprise to the players and indicated it will boost them to achieve success in the season.

“This came as a surprise and at a time that the club really needed a sponsor. I am very happy because this will motivate me and the players to do more than we have done before.
