Former Ghana Premier League champions Ashanti Gold have secured a lucrative sponsorship deal with Malta based betting company, Betway.
The Obuasi based club who were dethroned this season by Wa All Stars will earn a whopping $600,000 over a two-year period.
Starr sports can exclusively reveal that the deal will among other things help make the miners competitive on the African continent.
The news will be a major relief to the club as AshGold has struggled in the last six years since South African company Rand Gold took over as the majority shareholders of the Obuasi mines.
The club has also struggled to keep pace with the modern world of football business due to lack of funds.
Their woes deepened this season after they a 50 percent cut in their budget, a situation that affected their campaign in the CAF Champion’s league and their Ghana premier league title defense.
Betway has been operating in Ghana for the past 12 months.
Betway is a global online gambling company providing entertainment in Europe and in Africa.
