The company takes over from MTN, in a deal valued at US$15 million over five years.

Glo Mobile Ghana, which is yet to roll out its mobile services in the country, takes over the official telecommunication sponsor’s tag of the Black Stars, following the expiration of the existing deal with MTN.

“Glo joins a list of sponsors who are associated with the Black Stars, including Gold Fields Ghana, Puma, Guinness Ghana and Continental Commodities Trading Company. The new deal with Glo, Ghana’s sixth mobile operator comes after the Ghana Football Association announced a five-year sponsorship deal worth $15 million with the telecommunication company as title sponsor for the premier league in December 2008,” GFA said.

Globacom is also the official partner to the FIFA Under 17 World Cup.
