The Premier League of Eswatini (PLE) executive committee held a three-day workshop over the weekend to discuss amongst other things financial management and regulations for the league.
PLE Chairman Mark Carmichael updated the media on Sunday on the outcomes of the meeting and also to reflect on the areas the new executive committee felt were important to first look at coming into office.
“Financial management is very important for us as an executive for governance. We work with sponsors, manage gate takings and work with teams’ finances so it is important to look at this area to properly manage funds,” said Carmichael.
Carmichael also touched on the issue of Covid-19 and the subsequent return of football as announced by the government through Prime Minister Ambrose Dlamini last week.
“Covid-19 has disrupted the world. It is an open secret that we will have serious challenges playing without fans as we depend on gate-takings,” he said.
Apart from transparency in dealing with finances, Carmichael said they also looked at football regulations.
He said they had to ensure that their regulations were in line even with government laws.
