The Category Business Manager, Beverages-Central & West Africa – Nestle, showered massive praise on the level of play and enthusiasm exhibited by various teams at the recently concluded GUSA basketball championship at the main basketball court of the University of Ghana.
The world’s leading beverage company has showed its dedication to support basketball in Ghana especially at the grass root level– where they sponsored the Milo Junior Basketball Championship for basic schools at the El-Wak stadium in March.
Once again Nestle Milo which is a proud member of Ghana Club One Hundred underlined their commitment to help in the growth and promotion of the game by funding the 21st edition of the Ghana Universities Sports Association (GUSA) basketball games two weeks ago.
Osafo said the brand has been heavily involved in sports development and promotion at the grassroots since 1989, hence the decision to sponsor the event. He said the continual sponsorship of the game in the country would provide opportunities for the young ones to discover their talents and deploy them effectively for the benefit of themselves and society.
‘This is our first time of joining the GUSA train and we are very happy with what we’ve seen over the past few days’. the Nestle capo told basketballghana.com
‘We have always limited ourselves to children up to 12 years and this year we decided to go into basketball. We did the Milo Junior Ball in March and we decided to go into the Universities and deal with the big boys and we are happy to say that we’ve not regretted at all’.
‘I can assure you that we are going to go with you all the way and give you the needed support to realize your potentials and dream’.
