He added that supporting the league had showed a new trajectory in the scrabble championship.
“The unveiling of these teams kits is to really highlight the SW10 apparel sponsorship of the jersey. Others would be to give Airpoppers some mileage and the MGI league.

“This distinct development will set Airpop Alpha and Airpop Falcons on a good stead for positive placement at the MSPL.
“A feel of the SW10 powered apparel reveals an exciting quality that matched a blend of flair and diversity which is the attribute that made the teams to stand out.
“Their strength going into the final round of games, lies in the diversity, flair and having the best female players in the country.
