Safa Western Cape will meet with all the clubs to discuss how things will work out as they prepare to start the ABC Motsepe League new season soon.
What delayed the commencement of the provincial ABC League is that some teams wrote letters to the association expressing their grievances, citing the fact that they have circumstances such as financial burdens, difficulty to comply with COVID-19 protocols, closed facilities, loss of players, located in areas that are declared hotspots just to mention a few. Therefore, they could not put their clubs at risk.
In an interview with FARPost, the Western Cape Safa Chairperson Mr Gerald Don said the restart date is under constant review and they will meet with all clubs delegates to discuss a way forward as COVID-19 has taken its toll on amateur football teams, and they will continue to work together through this very challenging time.
The amateur football leagues resumed on the 6th of March 2021 after the local governing body has given non-professional football permission to hit the ground running.
“The Western Cape ABC will start soon. We will meet with the clubs by end of the week and discuss the fixtures,” said Don.
