In April this year, Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula set aside R10 million to help boost the sport of hockey and professionalise it.

A SA Premier Hockey League has been set up with the men’s and women’s sections consisting of 6 teams each.

Top players from all over the country were drafted in these 12 teams.

I am pleased to announce that Langa Hockey Club will be represented in this inaugural Premier Hockey League: Owen Maqula (Maropeng Cavemen), Lungile Tsolekile (Garden Route Gazelles) and Luthando Jonas (Garden Route Gazelles)

The Premier Hockey League starts this Saturday, 3 September with some matches being broadcast live or delayed on Supersport. Let’s get behind this great initiative and the players.
