The one-year deal starts from Qatar 2022 to the end of Ghana’s participation at the 2023 AFCON in Ivory Coast.
The MTN sponsorship is part of President Akuffo Addo’s fundraising drive to solicit funds for the Senior National Team, ahead of their upcoming assignment.

“Ghana will be represented by 26 warriors. Warriors who will go out on the pitch to play for our red, yellow, and green colours.” Kurt Okraku remarked at the launch.
“26 warriors who are also ready to write their names in the history books.”
“26 warriors who are ready to do more than their predecessors have done.”
“They are encouraged by this singular feat and support MTN.”
