Ghana Premier League side Wafa have announced a five-year partnership with Dutch-Ghanaian cocoa farming initiative Cocoa from Ghana.
The deal makes Cocoa from Ghana the official shirt sponsor of the Sogakope-based team.
“The Academy wishes to announce the signing of a five-year sponsorship deal with Commodity Warehousing Limited, producers of Cocoa from Ghana,” the club revealed on Thursday.
“Joos Bellaart, public relations consultant/marketing & sport bureau of Commodity Warehousing Limited, was in Sogakope last week to sign the contract.
“Academy director Karel Brokken and technical director Sam Arday penned on behalf of the school.”
Cocoa from Ghana, which recently entered into a strategic partnership with the Ghana Olympic Committee, will appear on Wafa’s kits.
“We are proud to wear the Cocoa from Ghana brand on our shirts and hope it will increase awareness for the Ghanaian cocoa industry,” Brokken said.
Bellaart added: “This is a win-win situation. It demonstrates Ghana’s passion for football while simultaneously promoting their key export product.”
Wafa, originally established by Dutch Eredivisie outfit Feyenoord as a Ghanaian training centre, are known to have produced players such as Harrison Afful and Christian Atsu, both members of the Black Stars.
The club currently sits eighth on the Ghana Premier League table.
