26 October 2017 – The Sasol League is set to take Mpumalanga by storm when it touches down in Secunda from 26-28 October at the Embalenhle Sasol Club.
Held in conjunction with the South African Football Association (SAFA), the Sasol League roadshow will serve as the provincial playoffs where the top four teams in each of the two streams in the province will face off to determine the provincial champions that will represent Mpumalanga at the 2017 Sasol League National Championship.
The roadshow will take place over three days starting with a media trophy tour where the Sasol Banyana Banyana technical team will visit media houses in Mpumalanga to highlight the roadshow and the activities taking place.
The second day of the roadshow will see a Coaches Workshop led by the Sasol Banyana Banyana technical team which will consist of a skills development and information sharing workshop focussed on the advancement of women’s football coaches in the province.
The third and final day will be all about football where the best Sasol League teams from Mpumalanga will go head to head with the ultimate goal of being crowned provincial champions.
“The Sasol League Roadshow is an extension of our sponsorship of women’s football where we showcase our commitment to women empowerment and sports development. The women’s football coaching workshop especially is another milestone effort by Sasol and SAFA to further improve women’s football by developing coaches. We are looking forward to visiting Secunda and seeing the best that Mpumalanga has to offer in terms of women’s football,” said Nozipho Mbatha – Sasol Group Brand Marketing Manager.
Notably, Sasol recently renewed their 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 for another four (4) years until 2021.
The Sasol League takes place across all the nine provinces of South Africa. Matches are played on Saturdays and Sundays in the afternoon and will culminate with the National Championships that take place over a period of one week towards the end of the year.
