Premier League club, Ashantigold SC, have signed a sponsorship deal with online sporting betting outfit, Betway Group, ahead of the new season.
According to Betway, the decision to partner Ashantigold was part of the company's strategy to establish itself as a major player in the development of sports on the African continent.
The deal has added Ashantigold, one of the most successful clubs in the history of the league, to English side West Ham United as the two clubs being sponsored by Betway globally.
After signing the deal, the Chief Executive Officer of Ashantigold, Kudjoe Fianoo, described it as a major milestone that would boost the Obuasi-based club's fortunes in the League and at the continental level.
