Sports Writers in Rivers State on the aegis of Sports Writers Association of Nigeria, SWAN, has challenged teams ahead of the kick off of the tournament in July, 2016.
Chairman of SWAN in Rivers State, Sopriala Bob Manuel, shortly after picking the form, hinted that having won a similar tournament some years ago, the sports writers are poised to win it again.
“We won a similar corporate football tournament played in 2005 and we’re here to win it again”, he told our correspondent.
He continued: “Sports journalists don’t just write, they can also play. We recently had the late Henry Kalio Cup and you saw what happened”.
He praised the organizers for the competition that would keep both executives and youths busy and reduce restiveness in the city of Port Harcourt.

The SWAN boss in Rivers State however urged teams to pick up forms to kick start their preparation early before the commencement of the competition late July.
Organizers say that a trophy and prize money has been put in place for the winners, while the runners up and first runners up will also go home with prize money and medals. They however called on corporate organizations to support the tournament so that individual awards will be included.
The aim of the competition is to boost the physical and mental well being of busy executives and office workers.
