Philani Kubekha’s team secured automatic promotion to Mzansi’s third tier with their 5-0 win over Sandton Super Stars on the weekend.  

“A great season in the Gauteng SAB League came to an even better climax at the WJ Clements Stadium in Reiger Park on Saturday, when Orlando Pirates secured promotion to the ABC Motsepe League in emphatic style,” Pirates confirmed on the club’s official website.

“In the early morning fixture, ‘Ezimnyama nge Nkani’ were at their ruthless best, dispatching Sandton Super Stars with a resounding 5-0 win. Grant Peters was among the goals, hitting the back of the net, in between a double brace by the red-hot Zakhele Lepasa and Katlego ‘Kuruman’ Cwinyane.

“The comfortable result meant that the Buccaneers secured automatic promotion, with their points meaning that regardless of the result in the final game, their fate would already have been sealed,” confirmed the club.

@Diski-nine-nine! If you know football you'll know that FC Barcelona's Reserve Side is in the Spanish second division. They have won it many times but can't be promoted to La Liga. The first side would have to be relegated first for the reserve side to gain promotion.

@nazzi the second , that was what i was trying to get to all this time. don't get me wrong i am proud of my team for reaching that stage. but going through all that trouble just to be slapped by rules that limits you to show your full potential or how far you can go.

as much as im a bucs fan i think this is unfair, especially considering that we only have sixteen teams, plus ther's already MDC, the are so many teams in south aftica playing in dusty fields trying to get in, yet you have teams who occupying 2 spots in the profesional leagues,
