Real estate developer, Sky High Group, Tuesday gave four sets of football jerseys and 100 T-Shirts to the Banjul Sports Committee in a ceremony held at its head office along Kairaba Avenue.
The donation is part of a three-year Nawettan sponsorship package that Sky High Group has with the Banjul Sports Committee. The four sets of jerseys will be used by the four teams that have qualified to play in both the league and Knock-out finals slated for Friday and Sunday respectively. The 100 T-Shirts will also be used by all four teams and members of the Committee.
Speaking to reporters after the presentation ceremony, Ebou Faye, the secretary general of the Banjul Sports Committee, lauded Sky High Group for the gesture and said it is a part of the deal they agreed with the real estate developer to sponsor all Banjul Nawettans for a period of three years. He explained that in each of the three years, Sky High gives D100,000 for the prize money and D50,000 for the jerseys. He added that the relationship between the two institutions is very cordial and mutual and hailed Sky High for always coming to their aid whenever the need arises.
Faye said they are hoping to renew the partnership when it expires at the end of next season and have already started discussions with "the sports loving Sky High Group" for their main aim of providing pavilions at the KG5 Mini-Stadium in Banjul. The Banjul Sports Committee SG further stated that he is expecting a very wonderful final between Jamesen and Plumbi in the D35,000 prize money league competition on Friday and in the Knockout competition between Man City and Makann Bi on Sunday.
For his part, Yaya Camara, Real Estate manager and a Human Resource manager at Sky High Group, said his company has derived a lot of benefits from the partnership with Banjul Sports Committee since its inception. He added that the partnership has gone a long way in marketing the brand of Sky High Group with Banjul and outside the country as well.
He urged people to start acquiring lands from Sky High Group as according to him, they are the first to introduce the purchasing of lands based on mortgaging. He stressed that there is no need for depositing because Sky High has put into consideration the plight of the low income earners.
