The one-year renewable sponsorship package would enable the company to pay the salaries of all the players and also offer them some logistics, as well as rewarding the ‘Best player’ in every match with an amount of GHC 200.00.
Mr Samuel Sackey, Chief Executive Officer of the company said the signing of the sponsorship agreement marked the beginning of an expression of the company’s commitment to improving the lives of persons who need to develop their businesses.
He said the company wants to add value to the lives of all it comes in contact with, especially the underprivileged, and that, they would focus on empowering small scale traders in the various markets.
“We are a young company with a very audacious vision to contribute meaningfully to our society’, he said, adding that ‘We have committed to sponsor the club for one year not because we feel sorry for them but because we identify with their vision of helping underprivileged kids.”
The Chief Executive Officer said over the years, the company had been helping numerous young men escape the poverty trap; notable among them is Baba Rahman of Chelsea FC in England.
“Through this sponsorship partnership, we will open up opportunities for a lot more of our youth to be able to participate in the sport of football and we take this opportunity to invite other corporate bodies to join us in assisting the academies like Dreams FC to grow our sport and also develop our youth’.
Mr Kurt Okraku, Executive Director of Dreams FC thanked the company for the sponsorship.
He said the club, which was formed in 2005, had been able to produce talents such as Abdul Baba Rahman of Chelsea and expressed the hope that the sponsorship would go a long way to help the club to achieve its aim.
