The 2016/17 GN Bank Division One League has been launched on Friday January 27 at the Coconut Groove Hotel in Accra.
Ahead of the start of the new season, a stakeholders meeting was held at the GFA Secretariat earlier on Friday to discuss various issues concerning the upcoming league.
Though the GFA had earlier announced that the Division One League will begin on February 3, the clubs called on the Division One League Board (DOLB) to extend the commencement for two weeks.
After considering the concerns raised by the clubs, the DOLB agreed to forward their grievances to the Executive Committee of the GFA.
DOLB Chairman Mr. Akwasi Acheampong Owoahene who spoke at the launch of the league, thanked GN Bank for their continuous support for the league and called on them to renew their sponsorship of the league.
“We trust that you will exercise the option of renewal so that we will still have GN Bank as our sponsors because we have been very happy with our relationship with your brand “.
The GN Bank’s sponsorship has injected life into our league and will believe that the amount that will be pumped in this year will spur the clubs on in the coming season”, the DOLB Chairman said at the launch.
General Manager of GN Bank Mr. Allan Quaye announced that this year’s sponsorship package is a total of GHc 793,500 and urged the clubs to put in their performances in the coming season.
