Asante Kotoko and Hisense entered a three-year partnership deal in November, 2020 which start from the 2020/21 league season, Kotoko will receive GH₵3million in cash and products from the electronics manufacturer.
Addressing a press briefing in Accra, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Kotoko, Nana Yaw Amponsah disclosed that per the agreement the club will receive the equivalent of GH₵1million in cash and products from Hisense for the next three seasons.
He also disclosed that Kotoko had already received GH₵500,000 from the Chinese firm before the start of the 2020/2021 GPL season.
Mr Amponsah said under the “mutually beneficial” partnership, Kotoko will also receive products worth GH₵230,000 to furnish its Adako Jachie training facility which is expected to be completed in December 2020. He added that in the years that Kotoko would not need the products, the Chinese partner had committed to converting the products into money.
He added that the partnership will also award GH₵5,000 to any opposing player who scores a winning goal against Kotoko in the GPL.
Explaining, the rationale behind that decision, Mr Amponsah said Hisense was confident that Kotoko would not lose any game because the same amount will inversely be disbursed among the Kotoko playing body for winning their matches.
Additionally, Hisense will also set aside GH₵5,000 worth of products each for Kotoko’s Goal of the Month winner and its Fan of the Month competition.
He also urged fans to patronise Hisense products, assuring that registered Kotoko supporters will be due discounts on their purchases.
