YOUNG STARS were crowned champions of the SAB (South African Breweries) League in the region during the play-offs on Saturday, 18 June, at the Batlharos Sports Grounds in Kuruman.

Stars will also represent the province in the upcoming season of the Safa second division (ABC Motsepe League).

The 2016 SAB League season has reached fever pitch, with the league’s provincial play-offs taking place across all nine South African provinces.

SAB prides itself on having successfully paved the way for professional football structures since 2000.

Football fans in and around Kuruman came out in droves to witness who would gain promotion to the ABC Motsepe League out of the six SAB League clubs.

As expected, the play-offs staged by SAB in partnership with Safa provided fans in attendance with an exciting football spectacle.

Speaking at the Batlharos Sports Grounds, SAB’s socio-economic development specialist, Ntombi Kholwa, congratulated Young Stars and urged them to continue working hard on their journey to professional football.

“Today marks another example of how much of a difference SAB is making in various communities through the SAB League. We pride ourselves on providing such platforms of talent identification, which in turn contribute to curbing social ills that are faced by our communities.

“We wish to congratulate Young Stars and wish them the best of luck in their new league” said Kholwa.

Kholwa was flanked by Safa’s director of competitions, Balebetse Monnakgotla.

“Once again, our fruitful partnership with SAB continues to yield incredible results for the development of football,” continued Kholwa.

“We thank SAB for their continued support in assisting Safa to meet its mandate of football development in the country.”

The SAB League is now moving into the exciting finale of the season, as the SAB u.21 National Championship is soon to take place, where the cream of the crop of the SAB League will showcase their talent.
