Ghana FA plan court action against Capital Bank

The Ghana Football Association has decided to take legal action against Capital Bank (formerly First Capital Plus Bank) for breach of contract.

The indigenous bank took a unilaterally decision to terminate its five-year sponsorship deal with the Premier League last year.

Capital Bank cited internal restructuring as the main reason for their decision to pull out.

But after months of rebranding, the bank has still not showed any commitment of holding talks with the FA to resume their deal.

“In any signed contract, there are provisions for issues of grievances and legalities, so if the first round of the league has ended and there is still nothing concrete about the sponsorship, then the final destination of the case will be the courts,”,” Premier League Board chairman Tettey-Oku told the Graphic Sports.

“The GFA has a legal board, so they will decide what to do next.

“Securing a sponsor for the league is not easy, it is a process. And I know the FA has started a process to get a headline sponsor in the shortest possible time, if not for this league, at least for subsequent ones.”
