Royal Leopard crowned Eswatini champions


Police force giants Royal Leopard are officially the MTN Premier League champions, their seventh league title.

The Simunye-based club comfortably beat Tambuti 2-0 on Wednesday to ensure a top finish in this campaign with two games left to spare.

The club has also won the titles in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2014, 2015 and 2016.

They will be smiling all the way to the bank for their E1 million first prize after losing out in the first-round incentive of E350 000 that was won by Young Buffaloes.

The title win also comes with a ticket to compete in the CAF Champions League, which will start in September.
