“I am impressed with what I have seen at the competition, and I did not know it was going to be as organised as this.
“But I am going to see if we can get more sponsors for this competition, because the organisers have done a good job.
“So, I will go out of my way to get sponsors for the subsequent editions, because it is like a breeding ground for our national team players and we want more teams to participate,’’ he said.
Kwande added that the competition was a good move to herald the start of a beach soccer league in the country.
“In anticipation of the beach soccer league next year, the players here will have the chance to feel the sand because most of
them have never played beach soccer before.
“Since the tournament is a prelude to the establishment of a beach soccer league, they will get exposed to the rules of the game and it will help them a lot when we start,’’ he said.
