AS part of moves to get the Ashanti Regional branch of the Sports Writers Association of Ghana (SWAG) formed, all interested members are expected to meet at the Press Centre of the Baba Yara Stadium today at 5.30pm.
The meeting follows an earlier one held by the interim leadership last Wednesday to prepare the grounds for today’s meeting.
Interested sports journalists are expected to come along with the SWAG membership registration fee of GH¢10. Today’s meeting will discuss, among other things, the inauguration of the regional branch.
SWAG has been criticised for being Accra-centred. Consequently, the current leadership under the presidency of Mr Ackah Anthony moved to get a branch formed in the Ashanti Region, which has a large number of sports journalists.
On the Friday preceding the last SWAG match in Kumasi, the SWAG organised a seminar for sports journalists in Kumasi at which the interim leadership was formed to plan the organisation of the regional branch and its subsequent inauguration.
