SOCCER – SWAZIBANK Managing Director Zakhele Lukhele is appealing for fair-play in the ongoing 14th edition of the annual knockout competition.
Lukhele said it was important for teams and supporters to accept results and promote the spirit of fair-play. He said this during the teams PRO’s networking event held at the Royal Villas yesterday.
“We are happy with the progress of the tournament so far as we have witnessed some exciting encounters at various venues in the country. We are appealing to teams and supporters to continue behaving themselves until the end of the tournament by accepting results in the spirit of fair-play,” he said.
Lukhele further encouraged teams to support their ongoing pre-paid card promotion which would also bring financial gains to the teams.
“We urge teams to support the initiative since it would come with some financial gains at the end of the tournament. The team with the highest number of supporters to purchase the cards will receive E25 000.
We will be having the first individual presentation on Thursday and the next one will be in the next fortnight,” he said.
Speaking on behalf of the local team PROs was Royal Leopard’s Frank Hurube, who thanked the bank for its continuous support towards the development of local football.
“We are very grateful to the bank for the good work they are doing to develop the sport in the country. We have noted a huge difference since the inception of the tournament. We also appreciate the new innovative introduced by the bank every year and we are appealing to local clubs and supporters to support the sponsor by purchasing pre-paid cards,” he said.
Also making his remarks was the tournament’s Management Committee Chairman and FA Vice-President Comfort Shongwe, who also urged teams to make good use of the initiatives introduced by the bank.
“We are happy with the proceedings of the tournament and we urge teams to make use of the product brought by the sponsor. This would help teams during the prize presentation where we will be only issuing money to teams that would have opened more accounts with the bank in order to avoid money laundering,” he said.
