21 October 2022- Limpopo side Copperbelt Ladies will face TUKS Ladies in the final of 2022 Sasol League National Championship Playoffs at Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday 23 October 2022 after the two sides survived tricky semi-finals on Friday to set up their date.

In the second semi-final of the day, TUKS Ladies needed the lottery of the penalties before finally overcoming Lindelani Ladies 4-2 after a tense shootout.
The closely-contested match had ended 1-1 during regulation time after Anele Miya opened the scoring midway into the first half. But Gugu Dhlamini equalised through a brilliant individual effort to level matters.
