On the other hand Mntungwa High School’s captain Colleen Mxhunu said his team was excited to reach the finals for the first time since the inception of the tournament and would do all in their power to take the trophy down to Chweni for the first time.

Finals will start as early as 09:00 and buses will depart from participating schools to the stadium at 07:00 .

Learners and spectators are urged to behave themselves.

“Alcohol will not be allowed in the stadium,” emphasised Hlatshwayo.

Trophies, cash, sport kits, medals, certificates and balls will be awarded to the winners and the player of the match, the top goal scorer and the coaches.
