The Sports Writers Association of Ghana (SWAG), has been honoured by telecommunications giant, MTN Ghana, for its dedicated partnership in the promotion, development and longstanding relationship in the organization of the prestigious SWAG Awards.

MTN eulogized SWAG for its dedication to the development and welfare of sports journalists in the country and its exceptional commitment to the ritual honouring of excelling Ghanaian sportsmen and women through the annual SWAG Awards.

MTN has over a decade been the major sponsor of the SWAG Awards and recently sponsored the Technology and Digital Training of Sports Journalists in Ghana partnering SWAG.

Three other members of SWAG were also honoured at the ceremony dubbed the “Bright Media Awards”, instituted as part of the ongoing 25th-anniversary celebration of MTN Ghana, to acknowledge the work of journalists across the country in telling the MTN story and driving MTN projects over the last 25 years.

SWAG members Phil John Quartey of Metro TV, Michael Abayateye of the Ghanaian Times and Nii Maale Adsei were all decorated on the night for various roles played in enhancing the MTN brand.

President Kwabena Yeboah receiving the award thanked MTN for the recognition of SWAG's contributions towards the MTN brand and expressed SWAG's appreciation for the continuous partnership.

SWAG, the umbrella body of the sports media in Ghana has been organizing the prestigious SWAG Awards since 1975, organizing training and refresher programmes for its members and influencing sports development and promotion in Ghana.
