Volta Regional FA gets sponsorship for FA Cup
The Volta Regional Football Association (VRFA) has signed a sponsorship deal with Home Group of Companies, popularly known as ‘Afe Lotto’, to become the official headline sponsor of the Volta regional FA Cup.
The deal, worth Gh¢25,000, is exclusively for the headline sponsorship right for the 2022/23 Volta FA Cup Competition.
The deal is expected to lessen the burden on clubs competing in both the Division Two League and the Volta FA Cup.
Founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the company, Mr Joe Ayivor, said partnering the VRFA will help bring back the glory days of football in the region and serve local fans with competitive games across the region.
“I’ve been part of the Association during the Voradep days when they were in the Premier League, but unfortunately, it folded up. We saw that the local people were interested in football.”
“Now, football in the region is developing and getting some mileage, and our local fans need good football like the days when Voradep played Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak. We hope such big match days return to the region,” he said.
The VRFA Chairman, Daniel Agbogah, thanked the Home Group of Companies for the support which he believes would go a long way to revive the game in the region.
“This is another step forward for our regional football and a big achievement. It’s just the beginning of our journey to take the game to a new level.”
The Volta Regional FA Cup competition is now a qualifying event to feature in the national FA Cup competition. It was introduced in 2022 with Volta Rangers emerging as winners.
The FA Cup Round of 64 draw was held on Monday, March 27.
