The Momentous Move For SA Women’s Football…

This weekend will be momentous for women’s football in South Africa as they cut the ribbon on a league that will change the face of the game…
 
 
Banyana Banyana have grown in leaps and bounds in recent years, with numerous COSAFA Cup victories cementing their place as the queens of Southern Africa, and a spot at the World Cup showing them to be one of the best in the continent.
 
Now though, looking closer to home, the South African Football Association have finally confirmed that a National Women’s League will begin this weekend – starting with Bloemfontein Celtic against University of Western Cape – as part of Women’s Month in Mzansi.
 
Mzwandile Maforvane, SAFA’s Acting General Manager for Football Business, is eager for things to get underway on Saturday morning, and has urged fans to head to the Nike Centre to support the girls.
 
 
“The Association has been hard at work in preparation for this weekend’s matches and ensuring that the league kicks off. We urge fans in and around Soweto to come out in their numbers in support of the women’s game.
 
“For the league to be a success, we need all stakeholders, which include media and fans to show their support and assist in taking the league forward.”

Bloem Celtic v University of Western Cape – 10h00
