The 2017 Edition of the Osun SWAN Sports Merit Awards scheduled to hold on Thursday October 19, 2017 has now been moved by a week.
In a statement, Chairman of the Awards Committee, Olayinka Olawole, said that the highly anticipated ceremony is now billed for October 26 at the same venue.
According to him, the change in date became necessary owing the clash with new date of 2017 NFF Annual General Assembly Congress and Aiteo Cup final, which involves some of the award recipients.
He also assured that the event will suffer no further postponement, while apologizing for the inconvenience the change in date may have cost intending attendees.

The event to be held in one of Osun State’s finest venues, the Atlantis Civic Event Centre, Ring Road, Osogbo. Where guests will be treated to a luncheon, followed by the award ceremony proper.
