In association with betting and gaming company, betPawa, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) will implement plans for a new stadium complex called betPawa Park Project.
The complex, for which work will commence this month, will be located at the GFA’s technical centre in the town of Prampram.
The venture is part of betPawa’s commitments under a three-season deal it signed with the GFA last month to become the headline sponsor of the Ghana Premier League.
The betPawa Park project will include a FIFA Star Grade 1 pitch, with a 3,000-capacity stand, plus changing rooms, a match officials room and a media centre.
BetPawa is committing $299,000 yearly to the legacy project, which should be completed within four to six months.
“This is a novelty in sports sponsorship in this country. And I call on other corporate companies to emulate this shining example.” GFA president Kurt Edwin Simeon-Okraku said, according to local news outlet Pulse Sports.
