Basketballghana.com gathers the Accra Basketball League (ABL) 2022 Season will benefit from a 20, 000 Ghana Cedis ($2,417.13) financial package from FBN Bank.
This was disclosed by ABL Director Alex Kukula in an exclusive interview with Basketballghana.com following the announcement of a partnership between the ABL and the financial firm plus telecommunication giant MTN recently.
According to the Director, the partnership agreement was broached in May and there are strong indications FBN Bank will step up to become a title sponsor of the league in the near future.
The aforementioned financial package is a precursor of the very likely title sponsorship deal in the works for the league. This package should help to reduce financial stress involved in running Ghana’s premier club basketball competition.
This year’s ABL has nine teams competing in the Men’s Division I and Women’s Division with 20 teams competing in the Men’s Division II with Reformers of Prisons, Ghana Police Service and TUSK Foundation as defending champions respectively.
Men’s Division II side Spintex Knights recently competed in the Tournoi International Tournament and finished in third place representing Ghana.
