According to Executive Producer of the event, Isaac Franklin Boateng, funding is the major problem of the organisers of the program that recognizes and rewards outstanding sports personalities.
He appealed to companies to support the worthy effort to motivate and encourage people and institutions that have contributed to the development and promotion of sports in Ghana.
