Dr. Tony Aubynn , a member of the Executive Council of the Ghana Football Association is of the view that the betPawa sponsorship of the Ghana Premier League will curb player exodus.
betPawa last week signed a $6m dollar deal to sponsor the Ghana Premier League for three years.
Ghana for sometime has struggled to prevent players from leaving the shores of the country but Dr. Aubynn is convinced the new sponsorship will aid played to stay in the Ghana Premier League.
“We are aware that some of our players leave the country for money elsewhere and some are paid $200 a month but if we can pay them something close to that, I believe they can stay in the Ghana Premier League,” he told Asempa FM in an interview.
“I know some of them leave because they want to get something for their family but I believe this sponsorship from betPawa will motivate them to play in the Premier League.
The Ghana Football Association is getting $6m from this sponsorship and we hope this will do us good by halting the player exodus from the Ghana Premier League,” he added.
Meanwhile, the 2022/23 betPawa Premier League is scheduled to be launched on 2nd September 2022 with the league kicking off on the weekend of 9th to the 12th September 2022.
