Football legends talk economic projects

MASERU-The Football Veterans Association of Lesotho (FVAL) had a combined meeting with the Makaota-Maroala Veterans Association in Mafeteng on Sunday to set out their economic projects and outline plans to give back to the community.

FVAL is an association made of local football legends who played from the 1960s through to the nineties.
The association was started in 2018. It is made up of veterans who played at a high level and already has 88 paid up members.
Some members of the executive of the Makaota Association are also members of the FVAL they wanted to assure them they are not killing their own association and, instead, are working together going forward.

The Makaota Association in Mafeteng is mainly focused on funeral covers while FVAL looks after the livelihood of the veterans.
The FVAL also works with youths to nurture them into footballers but, most importantly, to become individuals who are respected in their communities.
Speaking to thepost on Tuesday, FVAL board member Lebeko Notši said their meeting in Mafeteng was fruitful and they are hoping their projects will get underway which include summer cropping. Besides this they are planning to travel throughout the country to encourage other associations to continue working hard.

“We want to be doing something and we want to also visit other districts, we want to go to Leribe to speak to the veterans and encourage them to keep going,” Notši said.
“I am from Mafeteng but I played for Maseru teams. I have never played for Bantu and people in Mafeteng used to hear about me on the radio not knowing it’s me, so we want to give back to the communities,” he added.

Notši said they are looking to partner with different organisations including Kick4Life which specifically deals with youth as well as social development.
Notši said because there are no academies in Lesotho where young talent can be showcased and scouted, they would also like to bring back curtain raisers games before Premier League and national team matches to allow youth to display their talent.
