SAFA confirm ABC Motsepe resumption date


The South African football Association (SAFA) have confirmed the resumption date for the 2019/20 ABC Motsepe League season.

The League was put to a halt in March following the coronavirus pandemic.

SAFA had initially indicated that the league would only resume under lockdown level 1, but have since made a U-turn and confirmed that the national promotion play-offs would be completed mid-November.

“The ABC Motsepe League matches are expected to commence on 1 October and end on 31 October 2020,” announced the association on Tuesday.

“The national play offs will be played in Gauteng from 9-15 November in which the two finalists will be promoted into the National First Division.” They said in a statement.

Meanwhile, SAFA have also revealed that Bafana Bafana Coach Molefi Ntseki has been trying to tie down two friendly matches, for October, against COSAFA opponents.

Bafana will take on Sao Tome on 13 November at FNB Stadium before travelling to the islanders for the return game on 16 November 2020.
