“Most players in both Under-17 and 20 are products of this league. Others have even stunned officials after breaking into the Flames’ squad. So even though the country is facing economic challenges, we felt it worthwhile to continue supporting the competition,” she said.

National Youth Football Association outgoing chairperson, Mabvuto Missi, hailed FMB for supporting the junior league.

“They are the foundation of the national team. This league has grown big,” he said.

Meanwhile, Ntopwa Super Boyz owner, Isaac ‘Jomo’ Osman, thanked FMB for setting up strong football foundations through the youth league.
