SZL 20 000 INCREMENT FOR MAPHALALENI LEAGUE

MBABANE – Maphalaleni League has received an increment of a tune of SZL 20 000 sponsorship.
Maphalaleni League will be playing for SZL 60 000 this season where by SZL 20 000 will be for knockout tournament
and the league will be SZL 40 000. Last year the sponsorship was SZL 40 000 which saw the prize package being split into half to accommodate the league and knockout tournament. The increment was reserved by a loud round of applaud by the audience when the sponsorship was announced. Speaking on behalf of the Hhhohho Regional Football Association
(HRFA) was Executive Member Oscar Mlotjwa who he thanked the sponsorship and said they were very grateful to have been able to form such partnerships which will be key in developing football at grassroots levels. “Teams should make it a point that they work hand in hand so that they may tackle whatsoever troubles that come their way together since they speak in one voice” urged Mlotjwa. The sponsors highlighted that the teams’ behaviour will attribute to the continuation of the sponsorship and that could run for the next five years. Former Maphalaleni Member of Parliament Mabulala Maseko pointed out that football has been the greatest weapon for unity in his constituency and as a country at large. “Soccer teaches players tolerance amongst other things and has rules set aside as guidelines for fair play thus they must be followed” said Maseko. Also present was Eswatini Football
Association (EFA) President Bomber Mtsetfwa who emphasised on the need to respect each other on and off the field which he said will be a key in attracting and gaining potential sponsors. Lastly he criticised bad behaviour by saying they chase sponsors away and encouraged relevant stakeholders to make sure that behaviours are dealt with accordingly.
