SOCCER – AFTER securing a two goals cushion against Nkana at Somhlolo National Stadium, Mbabane Swallows have sparked a mad rush for registration for the trip to Zambia.
Whilst by Friday last week it had been stated that about 30 people had registered to accompany the team and paid the required E1 000 fee, the numbers dramatically rose after Sunday’s famous victory.
Now many people have belief in the team and they want to travel to Zambia to rally behind ‘Birds’ as they look to secure their road to the CAF Champions League first round by beating Nkana in their background, or at least drawing or losing but scoring an away goal.
The two teams clash in the second leg on Saturday at Nkana Stadium in Kitwe, and it would seem they will have many Swazis behind them.
Discuss
Mbabane Swallows National Supporters Committee (NSC) Secretary, Jackson Dlamini said they had received numerous people who registered between Monday and yesterday, with the bus at three quarters full by close of business on Monday.
He said they would have to meet as a committee by yesterday afternoon to discuss whether they would need another bus and if they would have a extend yesterday’s deadline to today.
Reaction
“The reaction from people after the (2-0) win on Sunday has been massive as many have already paid. Winning on Sunday really changed the people’s mindset and instead of one bus, we are now targeting two full buses. We are, however still to meet and discuss this matter and if we will have to extend the deadline, but all will be determined by the numbers we shall have by close of business today (yesterday). We shall also confirm the total number tomorrow (today),” he stated.
Meanwhile, the supporters are scheduled to leave Swaziland tomorrow, travelling by road to Zambia via Botswana.
