The Executive Committee of the FCT Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN), has called on corporate organisations to partner the association in hosting its 2023 Annual Week slated for Nov. 25.
The Secretary of the Organising Committee, Ayodeji Makinde said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday in Abuja.
He said the event which annually brings together sports stakeholders, also offers corporate bodies the opportunity to showcase their brand.
“The week is billed to commence on Nov. 25 and end on Nov. 30 with a 5-aside Football, Tennis, Handball, Volleyball and Badminton competitions,” he said.
Makinde said a medical check and physical fitness exercise for its members will herald this year’s programme expected to climax with an Award Ceremony.
“The 2023 FCT SWAN Week will begin on Saturday, Nov. 25 with a “Walking and Jogging’’ programme at the National Stadium, from package A and terminate at package B from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m.
“This is because as sports writers, we must be fit.
“The walking/jogging will be preceeded by a Handball match between SWAN and FCT Veterans at the Handball Court of the National Stadium from 10 a.m. on the same day.
“The SWAN Football final will take place on the final day from noon with this year’s programme expected to climax with a colourful Award Ceremony on Thursday, Nov. 30,” he said.
The SWAN Week Committee Secretary appealed to corporate organisations and sports stakeholders to give maximum support to the body to enable it organise a successful programme.(NAN)(www.nannews.ng)
