CONGRATULATORY REMARKS TO MBABANE SWALLOWS FC
The National Football Association of Swaziland (NFAS) hereby congratulates Mbabane Swallows FC for qualifying to the group stages of the TOTAL CAF Confederations Cup after eliminating AC Leopards FC from Cong Brazzaville. This achievement by Mbabane Swallows FC is very good for the country as the players get more international exposure which will have a positive impact to the national team as the very same players end up representing the country at national team level. This is a sign of growth in as far as our football standard is concerned, and this success also shows that our players are maturing as football is a game of struggle and endurance; no matter how low or tough the match, a player must always believe in persistence and hope until the final whistle, which was witnessed during Saturday’s match.
Over and above this, their success has tremendously marketed our football brand and the country to the outside world. The NFAS would also like to celebrate this achievement with the Government of the Kingdom of Swaziland, football family, Swazi bank, Nedbank, fans and the media as their support added a huge mileage to the success of the club in the competition thus far. As Mbabane Swallows FC continues to invade other shores of Africa in the group stages of the competition, the NFAS appeals to the nation, more especially the private sector, to support them as they raise the country’s flag. This is so because a lot of expenses will be incurred by the club during the group stages.
