Ashfoam signs MoU with GOC to become headline sponsors
Foam manufacturing company, Ashfoam Ghana has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Ghana Olympic Committee (GOC) to become the headline sponsors of the body charged with developing and protecting the Olympic Movement in Ghana.
"For a start, they have given us 50 polo shirts and 50 caps as well as mattresses for all the Team Ghana delegation going to the Games," Mr Mensah said in an interview with the Daily Graphic.
He added: "For some time the GOC and Ashfoam have been holding talks about this agreement but it was a bit late because they had already done their budget for the year. What they want to do is to partner the GOC to develop sports.
"They would give sponsorship to the GOC to help all the sports federations. The sponsorship would mainly cover the kitting of our national teams but beyond that, they would also sponsor some events and reward athletes who win medals at international competitions".
He said the eventual agreement which will be signed in December will also see Ashfoam sponsor the activities of talented Ghanaian athletes.
Mr Mensah also revealed that the GOC was also close to securing similar deals with Twellium Industries and Indomie to become the official beverage sponsor and meal sponsor of the GOC.
The Communications Manager of Ashfoam Ghana, Nana Yaw Ampen Darko said his outfit is committed to supporting the least funded sporting disciplined because they believe with the right investment they will reach the heights of football.
