On Friday during an interview with Accra-based media outlet Eclipse Broadcasting Network, Dr. Emmanuel Borketey Bortey, The Chief Executive Officer of Charger Limited, revealed that Happy Man Bitters wants to sponsor the Ghana Premier League. His exact words were, “Before the Anas exposé, Happy Man Bitters as a brand had a management meeting and decided to sponsor the league but we decided to start with some of the local clubs so we sponsored the National Circles Council of Asante Kotoko, Aduana Stars, Berekum Chelsea and we also sponsored some lower division teams, which included Kasana Nankana Football Club.”
He further stated that it meant to test the viability of investing in the nation’s most loved sport. He also gave credit to the current GFA administration for all their hard work. According to him, Happy Man Bitters is willing to sponsor the league on a long-term basis. “We simply don’t want to enter into a sponsorship deal and do it for just a year or two and leave the scene because that will not be good for our brand”, he said.
