Ghana – Journalists to converge for Betway sports writers conference
Journalists from across Ghana will be heading to Accra and Kumasi for the maiden edition of the Betway Sports Writers Conference, which is being organised by the leading online sports betting company, Betway, with support from SWAG – the Umbrella Body of Sports Writers in Ghana.
The two-region Betway Sports Writer’s Conference will be held on the 5th and 7th February 2020 in Kumasi and Accra respectively.
The conference will focus on equipping sports journalists with knowledge in live sports broadcasting, pre-game analysis, conducting post and pre-game interviews as well as bringing them up to speed with global sports broadcasting standards.
SWAG Vice-President Maurice Quansah along with other seasoned veterans in sports reporting in Ghana will take young budding journalists through tactics, and engage in sessions of skill development with them. Best practices to be deployed in the ongoing Ghana Premier League will also be discussed with club communication officers present.
Betway Country Manager Kwabena Oppong Nkrumah encouraged sports writers across the country to take advantage of the training to equip themselves and further display their professionalism in reporting on the GPL to promote the game we all love.
Betway since its inception in Ghana in 2016 has been heavily committed to the development of sports in Ghana through its sponsorship of Ashanti Gold SC, Liberty Professionals FC and Aduana Stars FC and a number of clubs across the world.
