Ghana Premier League side New New Edubiase United have signed a three-year sponsorship deal with local mobile phone handset dealer Telefonika.
The amount, yet to be disclosed by both parties, will financially propel the club in the transfer market.
Edubiase struggled for cash when they lost their SIDALCO sponsorship following the death of owner David Lamptey last year.
The Bekwai-based faced financial difficulties on their debut in African in the qualifiers of the 2013 CAF Confederation Cup where they failed to go beyond the first round.
“We thank Telefonika for their support and we promise to do everything possible to enable them to get the needed mileage for that huge investment,” Club president New Edubiase Abdul Salam Yakubu told the Daily Graphic.
The deal will see Edubiase have their jerseys for the season branded with Telefonika’s logo and replica jerseys for their supporters.
