‘’It’s a game that unites us here in Ghana and it ignites our passion. Its this game that is played by both men and women but we tend to see more of the men’s football game. But we at believes that women deserve the needed support to enhance their full potential in this sport and Malta Guinness is happy to help provide this support by sponsoring the Women’s Premier League’’.
