A one-day women’s football tournament – the Battle of the Titans – featuring four clubs, will battle for glory and the prize at Thaba Nchu’s Mmabana Stadium on Saturday (27/01).

The participating clubs are two from Lesotho, namely the Lesotho Defence Force and Stoko FC. Local teams are Kodisang FC and Bloemfontein Celtic Ladies, current two-time national Sasol Women’s League champions.

Two celebrity sides, Bloemfontein supporters and Kodisang Masters, have been featured as part of promo­ting women’s football.

The main prize at stake is R3 000 that the winning team is guaranteed to take home, plus a trophy and a gold medal. The runner up will receive a silver medal, while the third achiever will take home a bronze medal.

The four teams will compete on a knockout basis to decide the two finalists.

The match between Kodisang Ladies and Lesotho Defence Force starts at 09:00 and the game between Celtic Ladies and Stoko at 11:00.

This is the first edition of this international tournament promoting women’s football.
