The Eswatini Football Association (EFA) continues to leave a mark in as far as the infrastructure development in the country is concerned. This is evident with the construction of the EFA’s Technical Centre in Lobamba, the King Sobhuza II Stadium in Nhlangano and the yet to be finalized regional Technical Centre at KaLanga. “Over and above the King Sobhuza II Stadium, which is now in full operation, housing the Shiselweni Regional Football Association and also providing a source of revenue generation, the mini-stadium and regional Technical Centre at KaLanga, in the Lubombo Region, a FIFA Forward Project, is also complete”, said the EFA President Mr. Adam Mthethwa. This facility will house the Lubombo Regional Football Association as well as provide an income generation platform for the regional football association. The finalization of this project has been delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The next stop in as far as the EFA’s infrastructure development projects are concerned is Mkhuzweni where the football association will construct a mini-stadium and regional centre in Northern Hhohho. “The Executive Committee has now set its sight on the implementation of the mini-stadium and regional technical centre at Mkhuzweni, in the northern Hhohho, with the construction commencement scheduled for August 2020”, Mthethwa said. This FIFA Forward project is valued at over E23 Million. After this project, the EFA will be left with the Manzini Region as it decentralizes the football facilities to all the four regions of the country.
