Swag Cup


The SWAG CUP   is  a  ceremonial  match (hitherto football) played at the end of  the season  between  two  exciting  clubs  in  the League.  SWAG  CUP  is  played  to  honour ex-GFA  and  Hearts  of  Oak  Director, Henry Plange Nyemitei, popularly known as  H.P.  Nyemitei  (who  also  worked  at  SIC Insurance  Company;  a  regular  sponsor  of the  match).

SWAG  Cup  was  birthed  to generate  revenue  for  SWAG  activities, especially  the  organization  of  the  SWAG Awards.  It  is  a  platform  that  showcases players;  often  displaying  unknown  players who  later  become  stars  and  in  some  cases superstars. The  clubs  create  the  kind  of surprises  with  the  SWAG  CUP  that  the fans  love.

However,  due  to  huge  financial demands  from  the  popular  clubs,  the match  was  not  played  in  some  years.  Some of  the  exciting  clubs  featured  are  Ebusua Dwarfs,  Dumas  Boys,  Tano  Bofoakwa, Eleven  Wise,  Hasaacas,  Okwawu  United, All  Blacks,  AshantiGold,  Hearts  of  Oak, Asante  Kotoko,  Heart  of  Lions  and Liberty  Professionals.  Mysterious  Ebusua Dwarfs  were  the  first  winners  in  1972. Overall,  Asante  Kotoko  have  won  14 times,  followed  by  Hearts  of  Oak’s  five times  and AshantiGold’s four times.
