THE Premier Soccer League acting chief
executive, Mato Madlala has welcomed the newly promoted National First Division (NFD) clubs, Magesi FC and Kings United.

The two clubs were promoted at the ABC Motsepe play-offs which ended on Sunday.

They will now form part of the 32 members of the National Soccer League (NSL).

This is the first time these clubs have been members of the NSL.

“We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate our two new members, Kings United and Magesi FC, for this great achievement in their history.

“We welcome them to the NSL family and we look forward to working closely with them.

“Through our induction process, which includes the PSL compliance manual that covers a number of important aspects of club management from staging a fixture, security, marketing, football related matters, media and broadcast, we will equip Magesi FC and Kings United with the necessary knowledge and expertise expected at this level,” said Madlala.

Magesi FC will be the second club from Limpopo in the NFD, together with Black Leopards.

Kings United joins the likes of Amazulu, Thanda Royal Zulu and Royal
Eagles in KZN.

• The two clubs that were relegated from the NFD are African Warriors and Moroka Swallows.
