The vice chairman of the Ghana Premier League committee, Jesse Agyapong has revealed that the league is on course to add another sponsor in their ranks.

The search continues for a headline sponsor but so far, the league has attracted two category sponsors namely StarTimes for the TV rights and NASCO for player awards. This new sponsor is said to be another category sponsor and not a headline sponsor.

“The good is that technically more than 80% of the conversation has moved beyond the introduction [and] the paperwork. For some, we are at the negotiation stage. I always want to limit the announcements to the general secretary but as at now there are two good proposals on the table [but] not from a title sponsorship perspective,” he told Joy FM.

“Every company that we feel should be able to invest in the game, we have reached out [that is] from the telecom side, from the insurance side, even from an automobile side we have. There hasn’t been an announcement because we have not agreed in principle to the counteroffers made. My belief is that the general secretary has a herculean task regarding the decision he has to make. Give us till maybe about the first week of March. I believe that the decision will be made”.
