Teams battle it out

2017-06-28 06:02

Six amateur football clubs vying for promotion to the third division are gearing up to battle it out for the two available slots at the promotion play-offs.

The clubs are competing in the Interstate Bus Lines/Safa Promotion League of the greater Mangaung Metro Municipality. They qualified by winning the league stream in their respective towns.

The six clubs will converge at the Mangaung Sport Complex in Bloemfontein on Saturday (01/06).

The teams are: Action Spar (Bloemfontein), Junior Mates (Wepener), Morojaneng United (Dewetsdorp), Roo Stars (Botshabelo), City Sharks (Thaba Nchu) and Valencia (Soutpan).

The play-offs will culminate in the promotion of two clubs to the SAB League, also played under auspices of the federation, Safa.

This is the first time six teams will compete for promotion following the incorporation of Wepener, Dewetsdorp and Soutpan to be part of the Mangaung Metro.

Wepener and Dewetsdorp were part of the Xhariep region, while Soutpan was under the Masilonyana/Lejweleputswa region.
