Daniel McKorley, chairman of the McDan Group of Companies and a devoted sports fan, has openly shown interest in purchasing and owning English Premier League team Nottingham Forest.
Monday, October 9, 2023, saw McKorley give a speech at the Joy Thought Leadership Seminar, which was held at the Labadi Beach Hotel and was monitored by 1Familyradio. He expressed his ardent love and support for the English squad. He claims that Nottingham Forest is one of just two soccer teams in the entire globe that he follows and adores.
The only team in the world that I follow, aside from the Great Olympics, is Nottingham, which was even playing in the third division, he said. Why? since I want to own that squad. I want to purchase Nottingham Forest, especially with all the construction.
If McKorley’s ambition comes true, he plans to make sure that at least half of Nottingham Forest’s team is made up of Ghanaians competing in the Ghana Premier League by continuing to invest in the local football system.
McDan buys Nottingham Forest, and you can see that around 60% of the players [on the team] are from Ghana.”
”Football Economy: Repurposing our approach to development, the Saudi Arabian experience” was the theme of the Joy Sports and Joy Business Thought Leadership seminar, which brought together experts to explore how Ghana may use the Saudi Arabian example to build its football business.
