Maccabi won the Gauteng’s ABC Motsepe League for this season. However, confirmation of the team’s participation in the national play-offs for a chance to move to the NFD next season had been delayed due to corruption and match-fixing allegations.

SAFA has since confirmed on its official website that Maccabi will participate in this year’s play-offs. 

Maccabi FC have been confirmed as the final ABC Motsepe side that will take part in this year’s ABC Motsepe League National Playoffs after the DC ruled in their favour this week.

This year’s play-offs are set to take place in East London from June 05 to June 11. SAFA provided further details on how the ruling was handed on the DC case between Maccabi and Vaal Professionals that has been ongoing.
