Unibank fulfill financial obligations to Black Stars

Unibank presented the second tranche of its $1.2m sponsorship deal with the Black Stars at a ceremony on Wednesday.

The wholly-owned Ghanaian bank entered into an agreement with the Ghana FA last year to become the official bank of the Black Stars for three-years.

The bank presented $400,000 to the Ghana FA as its first tranche payment for their sponsorship deal.

The Ghanaian bank in furtherance of honouring its financial obligations in the sponsorship agreement, made its second tranche payment of $400,000 to the team at an event held on Wednesday at the Alisa Hotel in Accra.

The cash injection comes in time as the Black Stars prepare to face Uganda and Togo in their final round of qualifiers for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.

Stand-in captain Andre Ayew received the presentation on behalf of the team.

“I want to stand on behalf of my team to thank Unibank for this presentation,” Ayew said.

“We want to assure you [the bank] and Ghanaians that we will continue to do well to ensure this relationship continues for a longer period.”

Ghana remain in pole position to clinch an automatic qualification slot for next year’s finals.

The Black Stars are away to Uganda on Saturday before returning home to finish off their qualifying campaign against Togo.
