Telecommunications giant , MTN Ghana has pledged $2 million to support the Black Stars at the Qatar World cup 2022.
MTN’s contributions to Black Stars in Qatar World Cup make both players and fans happy to aim higher and make a difference in their 4th time in the World cup.
“As a nation connected through football and with rich football history, MTN will join all Ghanaians in support of this national agenda, and we would like to wish the Black Stars the very best as they make the nation proud in Qatar,” the report said as quoted by Graphic Sports.
After missing out on the 2018 edition in Russia, the Black Stars have been drawn in Group H alongside Portugal, South Korea, and Uruguay.
Ghana’s first game will be against Portugal on November 24, followed by matches against South Korea and Uruguay on November 28 and December 2, respectively.
On November 17, the Black Stars will meet Switzerland in an international friendly before heading to Qatar for the World Cup.
However, MTN’s $2 million pledge to the Black Stars is also to support the team in its preparation for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast which will take place in early 2024.
According to the Black Stars official Twitter page, fans will be able to watch Black Stars matches on MTN’s unique platform Ayoba.
