Entries for the Metropolitan SASFA U16 Cup are open and schools have until 20 March 2013 to enter their teams into this national competition, which is open to all South African schools.
Since its inception four years ago, the Metropolitan SASFA U16 Cup has had a significant impact on youth soccer development in South Africa. Last year’s winners, Rosina Sedibane Modiba School from Gauteng, represented South Africa in Brazil at the ISF World Championships in 2012 and this year they will once again have this honour when the travel to France.
The competition format comprises three main phases prior to the national play-offs, including zonal, regional and provincial phases. The zonal segment consists of a round-robin league phase for schools registered with the Department of Education in the 1016 designated districts across the country, in which each team play a maximum of seven matches.
In the regional phase, the top two teams that emerge from each district will be divided into 63 regions where they compete in a knock-out competition for qualification for the provincial phase.
The top two finishers in each region then enter their respective provincial play-offs in another knock-out round from which the top two teams in each of the nine provinces proceed to the national play-offs.
