A statement released by the betPawa, the headline sponsor for the Ghana Premier League has belied media reports that it has withdrawn its sponsorship.
Earlier this week, it was reported in a section of the media that the GFA had informed all 18 premier league clubs about the withdrawal of betPawa.
Although the statement by the online betting company did not directly debunk the reports, it confirmed it was still a sponsor for the top flight.
The release announced a shift in focus to the partnership with the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
“Per our new partnership, we will be revising the betPawa Locker Room Bonus payment to the players from GHC150 to GHC400 for every match their team wins.”
It also noted that under the current arrangement, the first phase of betPawa Park will be completed.
It added, “We want to assure the sporting community that BetPawa and GFA will continue to work together to develop and improve football standards in the country.”
Locker Room Bonus (LRB) is paid to all interested players that make the squad list per match in Ghana’s top-tier league. The money is paid directly to their mobile wallets immediately after winning a match and before they leave the stadium.
On Wednesday, August 3, 2022 betPawa was unveiled as the headline sponsor of the Ghana Premier League with a three-year deal worth $6M.
betPawa, based in Estonia, is an online betting operator designed to help users bet on games with 24-hour customer support.
