She said MTN is working towards achieving its vision of leading the delivery of a bold new digital world and has committed itself to making the necessary investments to ensure that their customers experience the digital age.

?This has become relevant because technology is a driving force of various spheres in our lives, business, education health and sports.

?Today many sports disciplines are using technology to develop strategies to build their clubs, select players and analyse individuals as well as team performance,? she added.

Falconer urged sports journalists and administrators and officials to use technology to drive support for Ghana sports.

Ackah Anthony, President of SWAG, expressed appreciation to MTN Ghana for their continuous support towards the organisation of the event.

He said MTN, over the past years, has proven to be a reliable partner of SWAG in the organisation of the prestigious event and encouraged the company to continue with its good works.
