Airtel Gabon sponsors professionalised football association

Thursday 19 December 2013 | 00:12 CET | News
Mobile operator Airtel Gabon has become the official sponsor of the country's football championship for the next three years, under a deal worth slightly less than EUR 3.05 million to national football league LINAF. National Foot is the brand representing the association of now professionalised Gabonese clubs. Airtel Gabon CEO Antoine Pamboro said at the signing ceremony that the operator began as Celtel in 2000, became Zain a few years later, and is now Airtel. He explained that the State, regardless of its financial capacities, cannot bring home this excellent project alone.
