The Ghana Olympic Committee (GOC) expresses its heartfelt appreciation to all sponsors and supporters who responded to the call to support Team Ghana in its recent campaign to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games in Brazil.
Your invaluable sponsorships and contributions played a huge role in ensuring that our young sportsmen and sportswomen were able to live out their dreams in Rio.
We want to publicly acknowledge the contributions you made in order for Ghanaians to also have the opportunity to appreciate the support you gave our Olympic team.
Below is the list of corporate sponsorships the GOC received leading up to the Rio 2016 Games:
We extend a special “Thank you” to Honorable Edwin Nii Lante Vanderpuye, the Minister of Youth and Sports and his team at the Ministry. It was his commitment to ensuring that the contingent got the support it needed that led him to initiate and sustain the conversations with GNPC, which ultimately led to the funding they extended. Similarly, he successfully arranged for his team to directly pay per the bulk of the per diems in Rio, for the 32-member contingent.
Without the support of the sponsors and the Ministry of Youth and Sports, Team Ghana’s participation at the Rio 2016 Olympics would not have been possible. For that, the GOC thanks you all again! You helped make Ghana proud.
