MBABANE – Thousands of spectators crammed the Mavuso Sports Centre to watch the pulsating clash between Matsapha United and Mbabane Swallows.


The two sides crossed swords in a MTN Premier League top-of-the-table clash, which ended in a goal-less draw at Mavuso Sports Centre on Wednesday night.


While the fixture was the main attraction, there was a match-up between Red Lions and Moneni Pirates later that night.
Figures released by one of the hosting teams’ CEO, Victor ‘Mavikane’ Dlamini, showed that E183 500 was collected at the gates. In essence, 4 587 spectators paid to watch the games.


Even though Dlamini did not disclose the share of each team, calculations by this publication revealed that each side was entitled to E55 050. Red Lions were the other hosting team. 
“We apologise for the over an hour delay for the match. We had to delay the game to avoid a stampede. The situation was beyond our control.


“As Matsapha we insist our presence will be felt in the Premier League. We’re not an ordinary team,” said Dlamini.
The seasoned sport administrator, on the other hand, thanked the security personnel for maintaining order during the game following the unforeseen circumstances.
