20 May 2024 – Mountain Eagles from the SAFA Thabo Mofutsanyana region earned promotion to the ABC Motsepe League after winning the 2023/24 Hollywoodbets Men’s Regional League playoffs on Saturday 18 May 2024 out in Zastron, Free State.

Mountain Eagles, who come from Meqheleng, Ficksburg, beat Matjhabeng Real Hearts 2-0 in the final in a very entertaining encounter, which brought the locals out in numbers to support local football.

SAFA Thabo Mofytsanaya has produced teams that have gained promotion to the ABC Motsepe League for two consecutive seasons, and in the process have been dominant in the provincial.

“We are very proud of Mountain Eagles for their achievement,” said SAFA Motutsanyana Regional Officer Tsheliso Motijane.

“Under the leadership of our Regional President Elizabeth De Koker, football is thriving and we are producing talent that is representing Thabo Motustanyana very well. We had huge competition against the teams from SAFA Mangaung and Fezile Dabi, but our dominance really showed at the Hollywoodbets Men’s Regional League finals.

“We believe this team will go far and continue producing talent for the country as they done in the past. Players like Thembinkosi Lorch and  Felix Noge, who have donned the national team colours, are from this club and the mission is to develop players for the nation.”
