According to him all over the world sponsorships have been very rewarding to both parties involved and its time clubs position well to attract such deals.
“Club management and administrators must strive hard to position themselves in a way to attract the right sponsorship, football is a lucrative work and needs investment.

Mr Akomea Kweku Ohemeng-Agyei, Managing Director of Mybet Ghana said the sponsorship was a step in the right direction.
“We know football in Ghana would go a long way if given the needed attention through sponsorship and by that we thought of a club that would give us what we are looking for and we saw that in Dreams FC.
