Ghana was mandated by the Africa Armwrestling Federation in July 2017 to host the 2018 edition of the continental championships after beating Morocco to the bid. Ghana accepted the challenge working to deliver an event where Africa converged in Accra and the Championship was tagged the best on the continent ever.
We took the challenge because we wanted:
- To encourage participation by Ghanaians and Africans.
- Enhance local and technical development.
- Prevent a situation where Ghana cannot travel to better the success chalked in Nigeria
- Promote and popularize Armwrestling across the country.
- Promote Tourism and affirm Ghana’s hospitality to Africa and the Wotld.
- To attract corporate Ghana to invest in Armwrestling.
Media, Our Strength :
Media is a major tool in promoting products and brands. The leadership of the federation is made up of media and marketing professionals hence a solid relationship with Gh media.
