Swaziland, April 3, 2014- The Swaziland National Volleyball Association (SNVA) will once again this year host its annual prestigious King's Birthday Cup
This tournament is hosted yearly by the association to celebrate the birthday of his Majesty the King Mswati III. Swazi Volleyball motherbody are very proud of what they have to celebrate this day. The actual date for this tournament should be 19 April but then since there will be other events such as good Friday in which most of the volleyball stakeholders and players will not be available, SNVA have then decided to shift the games to the week before 19 April which is 12 April 2014.
Apart from the development side, teams in Swaziland are divided into three basic categories and these the Premier League for males known as the A Category, the Premier League for females known as the Female Category and then the B division category which for now only comprises of only males for now. All these categories will be given a fair chance of competition.
SNVA is going to let these categories compete in their own divisions and emerge with their winners. "We are trying to avoid a situation whereby the senior teams dominate the small ones and further crush them down and away from improving," Said Mduduzi Mhlanga, SNVA vice General Secretary. "It is for that reason why we separated these categories during competition.
The format of the competition will be as follows. The B division teams will play in their regions and Swaziland is divided into four regions and finish their competition at regional/national level. Then the premier league teams will play at national level on 12 April 2014 as a preliminary round. The teams will be divided into two groups named A and B. The winners and runners up of each group will proceed to compete in the semi finals of the tournament at a later date that will be announces.
"This is one way in which we are giving our teams something to celebrate the King's birthday about." He added
