Mr. Opeisetan pledged that his outfit will cushion the Stars with another $500million should they qualify for their second successive World Cup final.

He revealed that his outfit was stirred by the FA's competence and efficiency, and therefore, promised their continued support for sports in the country.

In his acceptance speech, the President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi thanked Glo for the assistance.

He pointed out that: “With this financial boost, the teams have no choice but to excel in the discharge of their duties.”
