Legon Cities and 1xBet: successful partnership continues



Global betting company 1xBet and Legon Cities have extended their cooperation. The history of this friendship has shown its positive results, so the partners decided not to stop making new plans and creating projects to please sports fans.

Here's a look back at the history of the Ghanaian club, which has become a favorite one of the capital's public.

Ghana Premier League is in full swing. Seven clubs fight for gold medals and access to the CAF Champions League, as many more for the right to remain in the top division. And although Legon Cities is struggling to survive this season, the team has proven they can take on even the toughest opponents.

Formation and first trophy

Legon Cities is a relatively young team. It was created in Accra entitled Wa All Stars in 2006. The club qualified for the Ghanaian football top division a year later, but it took them 10 years to win their first trophy.

In the 16/17 season, All Stars were one of the main contenders for the title and took Aduana Stars as a leader – a direct rival in the fight for first place. Both opponents were determined and scored one goal each in 10 minutes. The draw lasted until the 89th minute when the referee awarded a penalty to the guests' goal, and Sadiq Alhassan realized it. The club's fans remembered that day for a long time – after all, Wa All Stars became the first club from northern Ghana to win the championship medals of the Premier league.

In 2019, the club was acquired by the Ghanaian government and renamed Legon Cities. The team also moved to a new stadium, the 40,000-seat Accra Sports Stadium, where enthusiastic fans in orange and black colors were driving  their team furiously forward. This arena is under reconstruction now, and the team had
to move to a more modest Elwak Sports Stadium.

Partnership with 1xBet

The club’s potential did not go unnoticed, and in 2022 the betting company 1xBet became an official partner of Legon Cities. The top bookmaker became the team's title sponsor, and its logo appeared on the players’ kit. Thus, the football club from Ghana not only attracted the world-famous brand attention but also received additional funds for its academy development. 1xBet is well known in the football world thanks to its partnership agreements with Barcelona, PSG, Lille, La Liga, Serie A and CAF.

2022/23 season – battle with the best

Maxwell Konadu's team continue their ascent in the standings – recently managed to beat the championship leader Aduana Stars, with a score of 2-0. The result was made by midfielder Michel Otou, who scored both goals in that game. The win helped end the team's six-match winless streak in the Premier League and lift Legon Cities out of the relegation zone. According to the Legon Cities manager, the team can play even better and take a worthy place in the standings at the end of the season.
