MBABANE – The newly-constructed Eswatini Football Association (EFA) Mkhuzweni Technical Centre might witness a momentous occasion, as Mbabane Swallows chase their seventh league title.

The Caleb Ngwenya-led side, who are five points clear at the top, have put one hand on the 2023/24 MTN Premier League trophy, after beating city rivals Mbabane Highlanders 2-3 at Somhlolo National Stadium, this past Sunday. Umkhonto KaShaka stretched their lead at the summit by five points after defending champions Green Mamba dropped crucial points against Nsingizini Hotspurs down at the King Sobhuza II Memorial Stadium on the same day. They suffered a shocking 2-1 defeat at the hands of the Shiselweni-based outfit.


According to Week 25 of the league programme, which was released by the Premier League of Eswatini (PLE) Football Manager, Pat Vilakati, yesterday, Swallows will host relegation-threatened Ezulwini United at their newly-found ‘slaughter house’, the Mkhuzweni Technical Centre. A win for the red and white capital city giants will confirm them as this campaign’s champions.

All MTN Premier League fixtures are penned to take place on Saturday, starting at 3pm across different venues in the country. Reigning champions Green Mamba will welcome Rangers at the Tambankulu Stadium, as they try to catch up with Swallows. Army side Young Buffaloes will play Madlenya at Nsukuwansuku Stadium in Mhlume. Meanwhile, Manzini Wanderers will play host to Mbabane Highlanders in a match billed for the iconic King Sobhuza II Memorial Stadium in Nhlangano.


The Mayaluka Stadium and KaLanga Technical Centre will be home to relegation-threatened Manzini sides, Denver Sundowns and Moneni Pirates, respectively. Ikappa Kappa have a date with Nsingizini Hotspurs, while the ‘Sea Robbers’ of Moneni welcome Illovo. The last fixture is that of Manzini Sea Birds versus Royal Leopard at the Simunye Stadium. On the other hand, the Prince of Wales Sports Ground will host the National First Division grand closing. Uncrowned champions Seven Dreams will welcome Malanti Chiefs. The game will be preceded by a showdown between Lozitha Spurs and promoted Sisonke at 1pm.
