According to the head of business of Glo, John Vasikaran, the company has enjoyed the fullest cooperation and understanding of the GFA, GHALCA and the Premier league Board and they are very pleased with that rapport.

“As time goes on, we will seek more cooperation from Glo and we will also help to make their products and services well known in Ghana through football and they will get more subscribers.”
