Techiman City FC have landed their largest ever sponsorship deal after agreeing to a five-year contract with private oil company Nasona Oil worth $350,000.
The former premier league club won Zone one of the Ghana Division One League last season but their qualification have not been approved by the Ghana Football Association after allegations of bribery and corruption were levelled against them by Wa African United.
However, managing director of Nasona Oil, Alhaji Abuba Shaibu believes Techiman City will provide his company the needed mileage to expand the company when they participate in the league next season.
“We are looking forward to growing our company and we believe Techiman City Football Club will provide us with the most powerful platform needed next season in the league,” Shaibu told Goal .
“Looking at the club’s location, it gives us the opportunity to have enough publicity in the northern part of Ghana since we’re aiming to grow and establish across the whole country,” he added.
Techiman City president, Charles “Micky Charles” Ntim says the sponsorship will reduce the club’s burden ahead of their participation in the Ghana Premier League next season.
“This sponsorship from Nasona Oil will go a long way. This will alleviate the financial burden on the club and also motivate the players ahead of the Ghana premier league,” Ntim said.
“We promise to give Nasona Oil all the necessary attention and mileage they deserve,” he added.
Goal understands that works are underway at the club’s home ground, with a new dressing room and sitting capacity as well as re-grassing the pitch being put in place to meet the requirements of the Premier League Board.
