After a two-and-a-half months lull, South African national teams return to action this month in crucial qualifiers and a high-profile international friendly match.

First in action will be the South African u17 Women’s National Team, Bantwana who will be up against their counterparts from Nigeria in an u17 FIFA Women’s World Cup Jordan 2016 qualifier.

The second and final round first leg clash will be played at the Abuja National Stadium in Nigeria on Saturday, 12 March.

Kickoff is at 16h00 local time in Abuja (17h00 in South Africa). The winner between South Africa and Nigeria will qualify for Jordan 2016.

South Africa received a bye in the preliminary round, and then got a walkover in the first round after Zambia withdrew from the qualifiers citing financial constraints.

  • The 2016 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup will be the 5th edition of the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup
  • The tournament will be held in Jordan from 30 September to 21 October 2016

Bafana Bafana will then follow with an away clash to Cameroon in a Gabon 2017 AFCON qualifier.

The match will be played at Stade Limbe Omnisport in Limbe, Cameroon on Saturday, 26 March.

Kickoff is at 15h30 local time (16h30 SA Time).

On the same day, Bantwana will host Nigeria at Makhulong Stadium in Tembisa starting at 14h00 so fans can watch this match and follow up with the Bafana Bafana encounter in Limbe.

A day later (Sunday, 27 March), the South African u23 Men’s National Team will be away to Brazil in an international friendly match.

Owen da Gama’s charges will face up against the Olympic Games hosts at the Rei Pele Stadium in Maceio, Alagoas, Brazil.

Kick off for South Africans will be just after midnight on Monday, 28 March – 18h30 local time (00h30 SA Time).

Bafana Bafana will complete the March activities when they host Cameroon in the return leg on Tuesday, 29 March at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban scheduled for 19h00.
