ZoomLion pledges $50,000 to Ghanaian supporters for 2013 AFCON

Posted On Thursday, 3rd January 2013

Ghanaian fans will be at the Africa Cup of Nations

By Ameenu Shardow

Sanitation firm ZoomLion have offered a $50,000 package for Ghanaian supporters going to the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

The package will complement government’s efforts to raise funds to sponsor persons and groups travelling to South Africa to support the Black Stars.

The State has been compelled to look for auxiliary means of financial support due to the immense pressure on government expenditure following the 2012 general elections and the proximity of the 2013 AFCON to the last edition in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.

Chief Executive Officer of Zoom Lion Joseph Siaw Agyepong made the pledge at the launch of it’s cleanliness campaign with the Black Stars on Thursday.

“As far as it is for Ghana and it is for Ghanaians, we will support them (supporters) with $50,000,” he said in response to a plea from the supporters.

This news comes as a massive boost to supporters who are in desperate need of financial assistance ahead of the Nations Cup which begins on January 19.

It also goes a long way to boost the morale of the Black Stars knowing collective efforts are being made to secure their resounding support in the stands.

Ghana will open its campaign at the 2013 AFCON against DR Congo in Port Elizabeth on January 20.

The Black Stars will then play Mali in the next group game before finishing off the first round against Niger.

The team will however travel to Abu Dhabi on Friday to begin feverish preparations for the tournament they hope to win after a 31-year wait.
