Lim­popo gets its MDC turn

Mul­ti­Choice Diski Chal­lenge comes to the prov­ince

African Times - - Sport -

THE Mul­ti­Choice Diski Chal­lenge (PSL Re­serve League) will, for the first time since in­cep­tion, visit Lim­popo Prov­ince next week with Seshego Sta­dium in Polok­wane as hosts.

The Diski Chal­lenge has been go­ing around the coun­try – from Um­lazi to Kim­berly, Mdantsane, Kanya­mazane and other ar­eas. The main aim is to bring foot­ball closer to the com­mu­ni­ties.

The Seshego Fes­ti­val will take place on Satur­day, 27 and Sun­day, 28 Jan­uary 2018.

This fes­ti­val comes at a time when the Diski Chal­lenge is reach­ing its crescendo. With five rounds of fix­tures left this sea­son, La­montville Golden Ar­rows are still lead­ing the pack with 25 points from 11 matches. The youth­ful Golden Ar­rows squad are chas­ing their sec­ond Diski Chal­lenge crown but they face stiff com­pe­ti­tion from a num­ber of clubs who are still within a shot.

They are fol­lowed by Bloem­fontein Celtic who are sit­ting on 22 points and Mar­itzburg United on 21 points. Com­plet­ing the top four is Ajax Cape Town on 20 points.

The reign­ing cham­pi­ons Mamelodi Sun­downs are hav­ing a sea­son they would like to for­get. Con­se­quently, they are cur­rently sit­ting on the bot­tom half of the log. Plat­inum Stars, who are rooted at the bot­tom, reg­is­tered their first win against Golden Ar­rows last Sun­day.

All this means there is a lot to play for in Seshego Sta­dium this com­ing week­end as the sea­son nears the end.

On Satur­day, Bid­vest Wits will lock horns with Plat­inum Stars at 10h00 and Free State stars will play Or­lando Pi­rates at 12h00.

On Sun­day the two Polok­wane based teams, Baroka FC and Polok­wane City will host Mamelodi Sun­downs and Kaizer Chiefs. The first match of the day will be be­tween Baroka FC and Mamelodi Sun­downs at 10h00. Polok­wane City will host Kaizer Chiefs in the last match of the fes­ti­val, kick-off will be at 12h00.

En­try is free on both days but mem­bers of the pub­lic will be is­sued with a ticket as part of ac­cess con­trol. Tick­ets will be avail­able at the sta­dium’s ticket of­fice on Thurs­day and Fri­day from 13h00. They will also be avail­able at ac­ti­va­tion points around the Seshego area. Only two tick­ets will be al­lo­cated per per­son on a first-come ba­sis.

Fans at­tend­ing and those watch­ing live on Su­perS­port 4 and Select (Chan­nel 210) stand a chance of win­ning a trip for two to Spain ac­com­pa­ny­ing the win­ning team. Com­pe­ti­tion de­tails are avail­able on the com­pe­ti­tion’s so­cial me­dia pages, Asid­lali on Face­book and @Asid­lali on Twit­ter, as well as at the start of the live broad­cast on Su­perS­port 4. - psl.
