The partnership is an initiative from the Authority to get more people registered to the insurance scheme; Nsoatreman, Samartex, Tamale City and Kotoku Royals are the partners in the deal.
“We are going to have our stand in registering them anytime they have especially home matches, our district offices at let’s say Kotoku Akim Oda will have a stand outside the stadium…we are targeting registering all of them-supporters- on health insurance. This can even serve as an incentive for people to come and watch their games” Dr. Okoe-Boye stated

All four teams will make their debuts in the Premier League next season that commences on September 9.
