Acting CMO of MTN Ghana, Mr. Guido Sopiimeh has said that sponsoring the Skate Soccer League is one of such exciting ways to support the physically challenged in the society.
Giving his remarks at the finals of the 2019 MTN Skate Soccer League, Mr. Guido said:
“Skate Soccer is one of such exciting ways to support the physically challenged while brightening their lives.
“The story of these skaters are amazing and typically resonates with MTN’s Leadership and relationship values. We are inspired by the tenacity and strength of these people.
“More importantly, we hope that with the growth of this sport, more people will be attracted into the teams which we hope will keep them meaningfully engaged.”
Mr. Guido reaffirmed MTN Ghana’s commitment to strengthen the positive relationship that exists between telecommunication giants and the people within our communities.
“As partners, MTN is happy to have come on board to help the organisers and the players realise their dreams. It was an opportunity for us to further strengthen the positive relationship that exists between MTN and the people within our communities.
“We appreciate the opportunity we have to make a difference in the lives of this unique and creative people.”
“Another value of MTN which we cherish is Can-do. Indeed it is very heart warming and encouraging to know that you have embraced the fact that disability is not inability.
“By acknowledging this fact, you are able not only to discover your dreams but also inspire many people facing similar challenges in their lives.”
Mr. Guido also applauded the International Federation of Skate Soccer [IFSS] for helping the skate soccer players to realize their dream:
“I can imagine how difficult it was to start this project and to secure funding for your activities which is why I congratulate the International Federation of Skate Soccer for championing your cause and helping you to identify your talent in this area.
“Together with you and IFSS, we hope that Skate Soccer will grow in Ghana and beyond and that in future you will win Gold at the Olympic Games. Yes you can!
