The Eswatini Olympic and Commonwealth Games Association had planned two events to commemorate the Olympic Day. One in conjunction with the Municipality of Mbabane at the Prince of Wales Stadium on the 21st of June 2023. The Mbabane event was a great success as it brought together over nine primary schools from around the Mbabane City. The event was also attended by Board Members of EOCGA, President of EOCGA Adam Mthethwa who was in the company of EOCGA CEO Maxwell Jele, Lesotho National Olympic Committee President Tlali Rampoona and CEO Mr Morake Raleaka.

Their attendance demonstrated the importance of promoting sports and the Olympic values within the community. It also highlighted the collaborative efforts between different organizations to make the Olympic Day a success.

In the second edition in Lobamba, impressive numbers were experienced as the community came in numbers to show appreciation of hosting the event locally after a lengthy spell on the sidelines. It began with the custom 10&5km run which tested the adults and kids athletic abilities.
