Globacom has signed another landmark deal with its sponsorship of Manchester United Football Club. The sponsorship is historical as it is the first time the top English Premiership Club is being sponsored in Africa.
The partnership of Globacom and Manchester United FC heralds unrivalled opportunities in Africa. As the official integrated telecommunications partner of Manchester United FC in Nigeria, Ghana and Republic of Benin, Globacom will help raise the profile of African football by, among other things, providing opportunities for African youngsters to hone their skills at the famous Man Utd Soccer School and arranging knowledge-sharing seminars between Man Utd technocrats and football club officials in the local leagues.
Globacom, which is famous for its sponsorship of football at different levels in Africa, has introduced another first by giving its teeming customers in Nigeria, the opportunity to visit and watch a Manchester United FC match live at the Old Trafford, England.
