Revealed: Playoff Games As Absa Prem Fight Begins

The battle to play in next season’s Absa Premiership gets underway this week as Maritzburg United, Royal Eagles and Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila lock horns.
 
 
With the normal phase of the 2018/19 season having come to a close over the weekend in dramatic fashion as Maritzburg climbed off the foot of the league table to secure a spot in the playoffs, the six fixtures that will decide the final participant have now been set out.
 
The playoffs will get underway on Wednesday when Eagles face TTM at home, with the final match happening on June 1 when Maritzburg host TTM as they seek to maintain their place in the top-flight.
 
Full fixture list:
15 May – Royal Eagles v TTM 
19 May – Maritzburg United v Royal Eagles 
22 May - TTM v Maritzburg United 
25 May - TTM v Royal Eagles 
29 May - Royal Eagles v Maritzburg United
01 June - Maritzburg United v TTM
 
 
Stellenbosch FC confirmed their spot in the Absa Premiership by winning the National First Division earlier this month – they will take Free State Stars’ place – though the battle for the 16th spot in the league is only just beginning.
