31 January 2022 – The Hollywoodbets Super League kicks off this coming weekend in what promises to be an entertaining season in the domestic women’s league.
Last season saw the first year of relegation and promotion, and we bid farewell to Tsunami Queens from the Free State and North West’s Golden Ladies. This season, the league welcomes Copperbelt Ladies and University of Pretoria to the league after gaining promotion as finalists in the 2022 Sasol League National Playoffs.
TS Galaxy Queens have officially taken over the status of Vasco Da Gama and this will make them the third Premier League club to own a female club – the others are Mamelodi Sundowns and Royal AM.
Reigning champions Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies will be looking to start on a high as they search for a fourth consecutive title, while the newcomers will have to pace themselves as this league is a marathon.
This weekend will see the first six matches, with two matches live on SABC Sport on Sunday (5 February 2023).
City Lads will welcome TS Galaxy to the league in a match to be played in Gqeberha, while Coal City Wizards host The University of the Western Cape at the Puma Stadium in Witbank.
The University of Johannesburg travels to Durban for their opening match of the season against Durban Ladies at Chatsworth Stadium, while Polokwane will host two Hollywoodbets Super League matches. First Touch will face Tshwane University of Technology at 15h00 at Noordelikes Sport Complex.
The action continues on Sunday (5 February 2023) as JVW Ladies host Thunderbird Ladies in the 11h30 match, while Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies will welcome Richmond United at 15h00. Both matches will be played at Lucas Moripe Stadium.
Week one of the 2023 Hollywoodbets Super League will see Royal AM make their way to Limpopo to face Ma-Indies Ladies at Malamulele Stadium, and the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium will host debutants Copperbelts Ladies as they take on University of Pretoria at 15h00.
