The 17th edition of the SwaziTelecom Charity Cup is already on the cards, and for the football passionate nation they are obviously waiting with bated breath for the kick-off of this important tournament in the kingdom.

The tournament, which has glaringly proven to be the centre of attraction for every inhabitant of this country, will see the involvement of the big three teams, in capital city giants Mbabane Swallows and Highlanders as well as hub giants Manzini Wanderers, which are all guaranteed participation in the tournament.

A play-off involving four teams will also take centre stage to produce the other team that will join the big three in the one day tournament.
That is the current situation in as far as the charity cup is concerned, and one is tempted to deduce that this year’s tournament will be one of the entertaining editions in many years.

When considering the possibility that either of the big three could draw each other in the semi-finals or else meeting each other in the final, it goes without saying that spectators are set to witness a spectacular Charity Cup. The huge fan base of these teams is also a motivating factor, hence the success of the event in terms of attendance and support is guaranteed.

Apart from the additional entertainment lined up for the day, for a football follower worth his or her salt no one would ever want to miss the football action of the day.

Just imagine a Swallows/Highlanders or Wanderers/Highlanders or Swallows/Wanderers clash in any of the stages of the tournament.
By any standard these teams are set to give their supporters the glitz associated with a tournament of this magnitude.

With due respect to the fourth team that will join the trio, it is an undisputed fact that a larger fraction of the country’s football spectatorship is formed by the big three teams, and that is not to suggest that their (4th team) inclusion in the tournament is invaluable.
We will really appreciate the impact by either of the teams which will participate; hence one cannot cease to urge the teams to give us good football action on the day.

With this day usually regarded as a family day for most of us, we are looking forward to a violence-free event that will not only be characterised by sheer football artistry but by also bringing enjoyment to people from different walks of life. Let the spirit of ‘Yami Nawe’ be part and parcel of our lives as we countdown to the main tournament.
