His Excellency, Prince Tetteh, the CEO of the Pribet Group of Companies, is in advanced negotiations to acquire a substantial 60% stake in Ourense FC, a Spanish football club.
This strategic move has garnered support from a distinguished consulting group featuring key figures from the football and legal sectors.
The consultancy group is composed of Mr. Julio Vazquez Dominguez, Antonio Nuñez Tena (former Real Madrid and Liverpool player), and Ms. Laura Vazquez, a notable football activist and lawyer representing Mr. Prince Tetteh’s interests.
Upon a warm reception by the club’s President, Mr. Camilo Diaz, Prince Tetteh was provided with a comprehensive briefing on the club’s activities. Diaz also personally guided him through the club’s stadium and gallery room, showcasing the numerous trophies the team has won over the years.
The Mayor of Ourense, Mr. Gonzalo Pérez Jácome, expressed his commendation for Mr. Tetteh’s potential involvement in the club. He articulated hope for increased opportunities for young African players to join not only Ourense FC but also other teams in Spain and Europe as a whole.
In recognition of his potential partnership with the club, Mr. Tetteh was honoured with prestigious awards, symbolising the community’s esteem.
As a gesture of goodwill, he invited Mr. Augusto César Lendoire, former Deportivo La Coruna President and owner, to witness the promising initiatives and contribute to the future plans for the club.
Mr. Prince Tetteh is the visionary leader of the Pribet Group of Companies, a diversified conglomerate specialising in construction, civil engineering, security services, multimedia, energy production, fuel importation, agriculture technology, and ICT solutions.
The group operates in both Europe and Africa, serving as the local partner for Karpower and providing electricity for Guinea-Bissau.
In recognition of his achievements, he was appointed as Ghana’s Consular to Guinea-Bissau in 2021 by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, exemplifying his commitment to serving and representing his country in diplomatic capacities.
Ourense CF, formerly known as Ponte Ourense Club de Fútbol since its establishment in 1977 and rebranded in 2014 following the dissolution of CD Ourense, competes in Segunda Federación, Group 1.
The club plays its matches at Estadio O Couto, accommodating up to 5,659 spectators, and currently holds the 2nd position in their league table.
This potential collaboration signifies a significant opportunity for Mr. Tetteh to apply his business acumen to the club, potentially elevating the visibility of young African talents in European football.
The acquisition of shares in Ourense FC holds promise for mutual growth and development for both the club and the broader football community.
