NFD in sight for clubs

2016-06-08 06:00

THE nine clubs vying for promotion to the National First Division (NFD) begin their tough quest on Monday (13/06).

The promotion play-offs are staged in the Mangaung Metro with matches taking place at the Dr R.T. Molemela Stadium and the Kaizer Sebothelo Stadium in Bloemfontein and Botshabelo, respectively. The play-offs will culminate in the crowning of the winner and the runner-up on Sunday, 19 June, at the Dr Molemela Stadium.

The clubs are: Manco Milan (Free State), JDR Stars (Gauteng), Morester Jeug (Northern Cape), Magezi (Limpopo), Tornado (Eastern Cape), Kings United (KwaZulu-Natal), Apollo X1 (Mpumalanga), Orbit College (North-West) and Steenberg United (Western Cape). Only two teams finishing top in the two streams will be promoted to the NFD and they will replace the relegated erstwhile South African football giants, Moroka Swallows from Gauteng, and African Warriors from Qwaqwa in the Free State.

Mangaung plays host for this week-long event for the first time since the formalisation of the second-tier league 18 years ago.

In entirety, this is the second time that the Free State plays host to this event.

The first time took place in 2007 when it was held in Qwaqwa.
