Ghana’s preparation for the FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brazil took a giant step when the Ministry of Youth and Sports received a donation of GH¢ 230,000.00 from Zenith Bank. The donation, which is seed money for the Ghana’s Brazil 2014 World Cup Campaign Project, makes Zenith the official partner bank of the Campaign Project.

In his address, the Managing Director of the bank, Mr Daniel Asiedu said their donation was to support Ghana’s participation at the tournament, since Zenith Bank believed that the power of football united many people:

If there is one sport that unites people from different divides, countries, tribes, political parties, whatever, it is undauntedly football and it is with this knowledge that Zenith Bank has committed to supporting Ghana’s participation in Brazil…

Government’s initiative for supporting Ghana’s participation in the World Cup is aimed at promoting sports, tourism, and the rich culture of the country thereby driving foreign investment, and  Zenith Bank identifies with this, hence our involvement.
