MBABANE - The Women Football League sponsorship uncertainty is finally over. Eswatini Football Association (EFA) President, Adam ‘Bomber’ Mthethwa, yesterday announced a E255 000 sponsorship package for the Women Football League (WFL).

The sponsorship launch was held at Sigwaca House in Mbabane yesterday. The event was also graced by EFA General Secretary Frederick Mngomezulu, WFA Chairman Sonnyboy Mabuza, Women Football General Secretary Aaron Mavimbela including teams’ coaches and representatives.


Mthethwa announced that none of the 16 teams would walk home empty handed. The league champions will pocket E13 200, while runners-up will receive E10 450 and the sum of E8 800 was reserved for third-place winners. All teams are entitled to E3 000 participation fee and according to the prize breakdown, positions 13 to 16 will be awarded E2 000 each.

Mthethwa apologised to all participating teams for the late sponsorship prize announcement and further commended club leaders for their commitment that they showed by continuing with the games regardless of not knowing what they were playing for.

The minimum budget for Women Football amounts to E735 000, from which the women’s national team and development activities were allocated E240 000 each.
Mthethwa added that they appreciated the support from FIFA but highlighted that additional costs which emerge during the course of the year were catered for by the EFA.

“The Football Association still spends additional funds, especially with women national teams’, Sitsebe Samhlekazi and Under-20 Women, international participation and other initiatives to support the development of women football with other stakeholders,” added the president.
Meanwhile, games have been played for six weeks now in the league. Below is the weekend fixture and prize breakdown;
