THREE FOOTBALL TEAMS CROWNED MILKY-MAX U13 JUNIORS
Life can only be understood backward; but it must be lived forward. Just like a mother who feeds her baby with milk, Parmalat has done so to the youngsters who participated in the U13 Milky-Max Junior Competitions. The relationship between the Hhohho regional Football association and Parmalat is growing just like a child does when he/she is breastfeed from her mother. This is good for football development as more players are being developed from this programme. Three U13 football teams reaped their rewards after being crowned champions under the Mbabane, Lobamba and Pigg’s Peak U13 juniors. These teams are Dark City FC (Mbabane), Ezulwini Aces (Lobamba) and Black Swallows FC (Piggs Peak). For their efforts, these teams won themselves E1 500.00 and a full football kit curtesy of Parmalat.
The sponsor through Qinisile Maphanga who is the Marketing Manager thanked the Hhohho Regional Football association (HRFA) for partnering with them and also implementing this football development programme professionally. “As Parmalat, we thank the HRFA for partnering with us as our business is also growing with the youngsters and also for implementing this programme professionally”; Maphanga said.
The Chairman of the HRFA Nigel Shongwe acknowledged Parmalat for her investment towards the development of the Eswatini Child through football as this also enhances the socio-economic development of the country. “As HRFA we thank Parmalat for this sponsorship as it goes a long way towards the development of the Eswatini child through football which counteracts the dangers of other social challenges that the children can be exposed to”; Shongwe said. He also asked the parents to allow and motivate their children to play the sport as it is now a career. “I plea with the parents to allow and motivate the children to play football as sport has become a career”; Shongwe said.
With Piggs Peak being the latest U13 competition to be sponsored by Parmalat, the sky is the limit for the youngsters of the country as the sponsor is eager to spread her wings to the other regions of the country.
