Coca Cola Company Limited has offered to bailout the Ghana Beach Soccer Association (GBSA) with the reconstruction of the beach soccer arena in Accra.
The sponsorship was specifically meant for the reconstruction of the sand pitch and beach soccer arena borders which were washed away in the June 3 flood in Accra.
According to GBSA, Coca Cola had pledged to support the arena rehabilitation with GHC15,000, which does not cover the upcoming Ghana National Beach Soccer Championship.
Coca Cola’s breakthrough is a further boost to a sport that was first introduced in Ghana in 2008.
In 2013, the national beach soccer team, the Black Sharks, was also created and from a status of no ranking, Ghana is now ranked 19th in the FIFA World rankings.
Meanwhile, clearing and clean-up work has already commenced at the venue under the supervision of the land custodians LABOMA and the La Traditional Council.
Additional support is also expected to come from the La Dade Kotopon Municipal Assembly.
