SWAZIBANK CUP LAST 16 – ‘UYAYIFUNA NA!’

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

Manzini Sundowns Football Club faces Sikhalo Se-Africa Football Club in the 2018 version of the Swazi Bank Cup Last 16. In its 15th year, the SwaziBank Cup proves to have grown in bounds and influence. It is not only a dominant factor in the Swazi Football Calendar but everything comes to a standstill during this period. The Swazi Bank Cup is special indeed and one cannot fathom whether it is the timing of the tournament, which coincides with the Amarula season; or the attraction of huge prize monies, or the excitement of playing across the whole football spectrum, where premier league, first division and regional teams are put together in one pot as equals; or the euphoria from football lovers! Whatever it is, this is a ‘Cup like No Other’!

’Downs relocate to somhlolo

Manzini Sundowns Football Club takes this time to invite football lovers from all walks of life to come in huge numbers over the weekend to watch all SwaziBank Cup games. ’Downs host Sikhalo at Somhlolo National Stadium in a game that will precede an explosive battle between Malanti Chiefs and Moneni Pirates. Games start at 2pm and 4pm, respectively. It will cost E40 to watch this doubleheader. Manzini Sundowns’ supporters will relocate to the main grandstand (right of Royal Box) while Malanti Chiefs shall occupy the left of the Royal Box. Moneni Pirates will be seated in their usual South Stand while Sikhalo will be seated at the North Stand (facing parliament).  We urge reasonable behaviour from supporters and respect.

U-20 decider against tambuti

Manzini Sundowns Football Club’s U20 Team faces Tambuti Football Club in a potential decider of the SwaziBank Cup U20 tournament in Group A. Tambuti is perched at the summit of this group with six points after having beaten Malanti Chiefs and Matsapha United. Sundowns are second with four points after having walloped Malanti Chiefs and drew with Matsapha United. Mathematically and in accordance with the analysis of the Head of Academy Penuel Malinga, Sundowns need to salvage a point from this encounter to be assured of a second place and a berth in the quarter finals. This is not, however, what the team will play for. The objective is to fight for maximum points and assume pole position in Group A. A last game surge from Matsapha United is a practical threat and the prospect of topping the group are motivating factors themselves. The clash is billed for the Manzini Club at noon on Sunday. The young lads are requesting supporters to come in numbers. We affirm that request.
