Ghanaian-owned telephony and computer Assembly Company, Rlg Communications Limited has offered to be the platinum sponsor of the live telecast of the upcoming 2013 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON 2013) from January 19 to February 10, 2013 on Ghana Television.Rlg has reached a deal with Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC) to support the state broadcaster to telecast the games live to Ghanaians on GTV, GTV Sports Plus and any other television station which takes the live feed from GBC and also for commentary on all ten regional GBC radio stations during the three week tournament.Prosper Harrison Addo, Head of Legal and Corporate Affairs at Rlg explained in a statement issued in Accra that the decision to sponsor the live telecast of the Nations Cup to Ghanaians is as a result of the company’s appreciation that football is the passion of the nation.“Football unites us all and we at Rlg believe that anything that unites the whole nation is worth investing it. We hope the live telecast of the Nations cup would bring smiles to the homes of the millions of Ghanaians whose prayers are needed by the national team to win Africa’s biggest football tournament,” the statement said.The latest move is another giant step and consolidates the company’s impressive in-road in the area of sports sponsorship in Ghana. It would be recalled that Rlg provided funds for the refurbishment of the Sports Hall at the Accra Sports Stadium now renamed Rlg DG Harthramani Sports Hall. Rlg for the past two years has been the only major supporter of athletics through its huge sponsorship of the Annual Rlg Grand Prix. The company was the lead sponsor of the 2012 ECOWAS Games hosted by Ghana as well as the annual SWAG Awards and the CANAF. Over the years, Rlg has evolved to become a key player in the ICT industry and is on its way to becoming a global ICT player.Rlg is optimistic that this nationalistic move to sponsor the live telecast of the 2013 Nations Cup would once again provide a basis to rally around the national flag and patronize made-in-Ghana products and Ghana soccer. Rlg has also wish the senior national team the best of luck at the tournament. Ghana is drawn in Group B of the competition alongside Niger, Mali and DR Congo.
SINGER Garth Brooks today said he’s prepared to beg Enda Kenny to be allowed to play five shows at Croke Park at the end of this month.Speaking at a press conference in America, the singer was emotional as he said he would do anything to make sure that the concerts go ahead.“If the prime minister wants to talk to me, I will crawl, I will swim or I will fly to him, I will sit in front of him, drop on my knees and beg – let me play to these 400,000 people,” said Brooks in Tennessee. He said the reason he wanted to do all five – and not three – shows was because everyone should be given the chance to see him.“We don’t do golden circle, it’s always been the same price across the board, You treat everyone equal, same way here, even in Vegas,” he said.A meeting to discuss the issue in Dublin was cancelled earlier – with even the Mexican ambassador offering his diplomatic services to help solve the row.Brooks said he had always been “treated like a king in Ireland” and he was perplexed by the row since Dublin City Council said he could only play three of his planned gigs. “Why are the 160,000 people being treated different to the 240,000? The statement to me was you can make 240,000 happy and play three shows, and mine back was, yes, or you can make 400,000 happy and let me play five shows. I don’t know how we got here but the ‘powers that be’ aren’t here to help,” he said.Some 70,000 people from abroad have booked flights into Dublin for the show. ‘I WILL FLY TO IRELAND TO SEE THE TAOISEACH AND BEG HIM TO PLAY CROKE PARK’ was last modified: July 11th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Croke ParkGarth Brookstickets

At that time, the world was unsure about what to think of South Africa, with many different messages being sent out by various sources. These did very little to build the country’s brand and it was evident that to attract tourism and investment there was a need to co-ordinate marketing initiatives to make them more effective. This led to the creation of the IMC, whose main objective is the marketing of South Africa through the Brand South Africa campaign. There are many benefits to having a consolidated brand image, with the most important being that a consistent Brand South Africa message creates strategic advantages in terms of trade and tourism for the country in an increasingly competitive marketplace.
