4 July 2018 – With just a few days to go before KwaZulu-Natal kicks off what promises to be an action-filled SAB National Championships tournament, 2014 Free State captain, Mojalefa Selumetse wished his province the best of luck in the upcoming showdown.

Selumetse played as a defender when Free State won the title in Mahikeng four years ago when they defeated hosts, North West in the finals.

The 23-year-old who has since graduated to become a teacher still has a burning passion for football and wished his province the best of luck for the competition.

“It definitely won’t be an easy tournament considering how all provinces have improved lately. Free State used to be one of the most feared provinces when it comes to the championships and I don’t think that has changed. The team just needs to believe in themselves and give it their best shot. I wish them the best of luck and hope they will make us proud” said the former defender.

“Another important thing for them to remember is that this is where scouts and junior national team coaches identify their players so putting up a great performance can ultimately change their lives” added Selumetse.

The official launch and draw of the championships will take place at the majestic Moses Mabhida Stadium on Monday, 9 July where the battle lines will be officially drawn for the tournament set to take place at the King Zwelithini Stadium between 17 and 22 July.
