The final leg of the 2016 edition of the Sasol League is set to conclude in Mokopane at Mahwelereng Stadium on Saturday, 29 October.

This year marks the eighth year of Sasol’s sponsorship of the country’s premier women’s football league, an initiative that has played an integral part in contributing to the growth and development of women’s football in South Africa.

Over the past eight years, the Sasol League roadshows have proven to be an effective and sustainable platform for talented female football players to showcase their skills and talent for an opportunity to potentially be considered for the National Team – Sasol Banyana Banyana. This initiative is also a platform that enables women to become empowered and for the women’s football league to continue growing and attracting the best skilled and dedicated players South Africa has to offer.

Brenda Mopeli, Brand Marketing Specialist at Sasol said, “We as Sasol are proud that Sasol League continues to empower and encourage women to play football. It is inspiring to see how many players in the league have went on to have lucrative careers while playing for the National Team. We look forward to shinning a light on deserving candidates across the country”.

Thus far, Limpopo has produced some of Sasol Banyana Banyana’s most unforgettable players, including former African Woman Footballer of the year (2008) Noko Matlou who has over 10 years of experience with the senior team, Lebogang Ramalepe and Mampashe Popela.

The Limpopo fixtures that are lined up hold the promise of a truly exciting day of competitive football.

Scheduled Matches:

1. 09h00 Match 1 Sisters FC vs. Seven Stars Ladies FC
2. 11h00 Match 2 University of Limpopo Ladies vs. Morning Stars Ladies
3. 13h00 Match 3 Ma-Indies Ladies FC vs. Moria Sweepers Ladies FC
4. 15h00 Match 4 Kanatla Ladies FC vs. Chippas Ladies FC

Dennis Mumble, CEO of SAFA said, “Limpopo has very talented and uniquely skilled women football players and every team will play their hardest this weekend, particularly because the stakes are high. We have no doubt that the Sasol Banyana Banyana technical team and scouts will be satisfied at the kind of skill that they will witness on Saturday”.

Limpopo was represented by Polokwane’s Kanatla Ladies F.C at last year’s Sasol League National Championship where they came close to winning the title but had to settle for third position.The Sasol League will culminate with the National Championship that take place over a period of one week in December.
