The Ghana national football team, popularly known as the Black Stars has represented Ghana in association football since the 1950s. Black Stars is administered by the Ghana Football Association (GFA), the governing body for football in Ghana and the oldest football association in geographic Africa (founded in 1920). Prior to 1957, the team played as the Gold Coast. Although the team did not qualify for the senior FIFA World Cup until 2006, they had qualified for five straight Olympic Games Football Tournaments when the tournament was still a full senior national team competition. The team has won the Africa Cup of Nations four times (in 1963, 1965, 1978, and 1982) and has been runners up 4 times (in 1968, 1970, 1992, and 2010). In 1992, the Ghana Olympic football team became the first African football team to win a medal at the Olympics finishing third. After going through 2005 unbeaten, Ghana national football team won the FIFA most improved team of the year award and they reached the second round of the 2006 FIFA World Cup. At the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, they became the third African team in history to reach the World Cup quarter-finals. Black Stars is on aggregate one of the top 10 teams in the world at the last two FIFA World Cup's (2006 and 2010), a feat not achieved by a team outside of Europe and South America over a similar length of time historically. Black Stars in 2013 became the only African side to qualify for at least the semi-final of the CAF African Cup four times in a row twice; this occurred between 1963 and 1970 and between 2008 and 2013. The African petroleum industry's Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) became global headline sponsor of the team in 2013.
