He also acknowledged the HRFA for the excellent work when it comes to the development of the game. “The HRFA is doing an excellent job in as far as football development is concerned as a result, their work was used by the EFA when developing last year’s report to the Federation of International Football (FIFA) which created a good image for the whole country in as far as football development is concerned”, Mngomezulu highlighted. He also urged Mbabane Midas to continue sponsoring the league as these youngsters who participates in this championships are the future customers of the very same sponsor as by so doing, the brand will stick in their minds.
