"Opportunity dances with those who are ready on the dance floor," These immortal words by Essayist Helen Keller will come to fruition this afternoon when the ultimate competition – the MTN League, kicks off in grand style at the country’s Mecca, Somhlolo National Stadium.

Every season is a maze of twists and turns, of good and bad luck but all teams know how important it is to win the first game of the league. It could define the entire season.

Life, itself, is full of ‘what ifs’. Everyone can write an alternative history of how things could have been very different, if only. Never more so than in sport – in the marathon MTN league – where fractions can be the difference between ever-lasting glory and enduring ignominy.

All the pre-season talk will be replaced by action on the pitch today as Manzini Wanderers clash head on with Mbabane Highlanders in a lunch-time kick-off match (1:30pm) before the main match where Mbabane Swallows begin the defence of the league title they won in extra-ordinary circu-mstances last season against three times cha-mpions, Royal Le-opards at 3:30pm. We can only say…Chudze Manikiniki!
