Ghanaian-owned Fintech Company Zeepay has agreed with the Ghana Football Association (GFA) as an official Fintech partner in a one-year deal worth Five Hundred Thousand Ghana Cedis (Ghc500,000.00).

The announcement was made in Accra on Friday, September 16, 2022. Present at the ceremony was the President of the GFA, Kurt Edwin Simeon-Okraku. Others included Director of Marketing Jamil Maraby, Henry Asante Twum – Director of Communications, and Benjamin Willie Graham from the Marketing Department of the GFA.

‘’We qualified for the Mundial on March 29, which would mark our 4th appearance at the World Cup, and since, it’s been quite interesting and exciting,’’ President Simeon-Okraku.

‘’We are supper happy that today we have a new partner in Zeepay. Indeed this relationship is for an initial one-year period, and we hope it will be a marriage that will last forever.

‘’But we also know that that can only happen if both parties behave well. ‘’It is our vowed commitment to act exceptionally well, which means that we expect the same from Zeepay.

‘’But we believe this will be a relationship that will be mutually beneficial. It will offer opportunities to boys and girls who would not usually be found in the woods of Ghana because that is what football is about. Football provides hope for kids who would not typically have a livelihood.

‘’So we are super happy about this, and we are looking forward to performing very well at the Mundial - the last outing for Ghana was not too exciting.

‘’If we all remember what happened in Brazil - It’s a story we all want to rewrite, and the attitude of the President – Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo, and everyone in the football ecosystem clearly shows that our country is ready to rewrite the wrongs of Brazil.

‘’I think we have a very competitive team, the country is expectant, I am expectant, and I hope that Zeepay is expectant and hopefully we go to the Mundial, we perform well and enjoy ourselves,’’ he added.

Zeepay was represented by Andrew Takyi-Appiah, Managing Director and Board Chairman Kwesi Yankey.
