ABC Motsepe League - Sports Leo

The 2019 ABC Motsepe League national playoffs will take place in Cape Town from June 4 to 9, it was announced at a draw held by Safa on Monday evening.

Nine provincial winners will battle it out for the right to be called Champ of Champs – and the finalists will gain automatic promotion to the National First Division (NFD).

The gold medallists will walk away with R 1000 000, with the runners-up pocketing R 500 000.

The Motsepe League has produced giant-killing clubs like Highlands Park, Baroka FC and Chippa United, who are all holding their own in the PSL – something the Safa president Danny Jordaan says makes the junior league competitive.

“The Motsepe injection has brought a huge competitive edge within the NFD League, and the impact has been very phenomenal,” said Jordaan.

“There has been a new league of life in the organized league and we would sincerely like to thank Patrice Motsepe and the Motsepe Foundation, without whom perhaps we would not be having this league.”

The four teams that have already qualified for the tournament are Acornbush United (Mpumalanga), Summerfield Dynamos (KZN), Steenberg United (Western Cape) and Hungry Lions (Northern Cape).

The winners for the remaining four provinces – Eastern Cape, Limpopo, Gauteng, and North West – are still to be decided.

The group stage matches will be played at Erica Park, Belhar, with the final scheduled for the Athlone Stadium in Cape Town on June 9.

The top three will qualify for the semifinals and will be joined by the best second-placed team.

Last year the tournament was won by Maccabi, with TS Sporting finishing second.
