KUMASI Asante Kotoko will be richer by GH¢60,000 courtesy Interplast, if they win the Glo Premier League.
The company will also give the club GH¢40,000 if they place second.
This was part of a one-year deal Kotoko entered into with the locally-based PVC pipes producer and announced in Kumasi last Tuesday
The amount is far bigger than the GHҐ12,000 the GFA pays to Ghana’s league champions.
Under the sponsorship package, Interplast presented a cheque for GHҐ100,000 to the club. The one-year-deal signed at the club’s secretariat has an option for extension.
Interplast’s logo will be emblazoned just close to the jersey numbers at the back.
This is the third major sponsorship package that Kotoko have signed this year. First it was tiGO that extended its deal with the club. Then came Smart TV who would be airing past and present Kotoko matches among other things.
The Asante Kotoko management headed by Executive Chairman, Dr K.K. Sarpong, appears to be on course to clinching more deals for the club as he promised during the inauguration of the board at the Manhyia Palace.
At last Tuesday’s signing of the deal, Mr E.A. Owusu-Ansah, a board member of Kotoko, who initialled for his side, said management was determined to get the best for the club.
He expressed the hope that the sponsorship deal would add another positive image to the parties.
