The trophy was unveiled at the football association’s head office in Accra on Thursday, 4th August, 2016. This follows First Capital Plus Bank's withdrawal as headline sponsors of the Ghana Premiere League.
The chairman of the PLB, Ashfor Tettey-Oku expressed his excitment at the arrival of the trophy saying, “We are required to provide a trophy for the winner of the league as a football association and if the previous one was not customized by the headline sponsors, we would have gone for that but as the new one has arrived, I'm excited and this one will be the permanent and standard trophy.”
He however refused to disclose the price of the new trophy.
