Safa out of the start­ing blocks

THE SAFA Frances Baard re­gion gets out of the start­ing blocks this week­end for the start of the brand new 2020/21 foot­ball sea­son with a bumper 16 matches that will be played in their ju­ris­dic­tion.

Safa re­gional sec­re­tary Ponat­shego Mon­dela yes­ter­day dis­trib­uted the fix­ture list for the SAB League. The list de­tails all 24 matches that will be played in part of the re­main­ing month of Jan­uary alone.

An in­spec­tion of the fix­ture list re­vealed that the Galeshewe Sta­dium is go­ing to take a beat­ing from host­ing most of the matches from this league.

The sta­dium is go­ing to host al­most two-thirds (14) of the SAB league matches start­ing from this Satur­day, Jan­uary 18 un­til Jan­uary 24. An­other batch of matches will be played on the last week­end just as the month turns.

Mon­dela still has to re­lease the fix­tures for the Sa­sol Women’s league which he also man­ages in the district. That apart, the sta­dium is oc­ca­sion­ally also home to many of the Lo­cal Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion (LFA) matches as well as some games of the Masters Foot­ball League (SMFL).

All th­ese fix­tures ex­clude the cup com­pe­ti­tions for al­most all di­vi­sions and the pe­ri­odic school­based matches whose fi­nals are on oc­ca­sion also staged at the lo­cal mu­nic­i­pal sta­dium.

Thanks to the re­cent good rains in the re­gion the Galeshewe Sta­dium turf has sprouted and bound well and only needs a reg­u­lar trim to be ready for the games.

All Safa matches are free to the pub­lic ex­cept where stated.
