Rumour has it that stadiums in Kimberley are likely to host the Sasol Women’s League national play-offs in the first week of December to determine a champion for the Women’s conference; this according to an announcement by Safa provincial Secretary Willem Coetzee yesterday.

The Northern Cape was among the last conferences in the national league to conclude its play-off series, after Richmond United Ladies convincingly beat RC Mills Ladies on both the home and away legs of the provincial play-offs a fortnight ago, to find themselves in pole position for the much anticipated women’s professional soccer league which is set to kick off in April.

Coetzee yesterday said the national play-offs will likely take place at several stadia in Kimberley from December 3-7. Richmond United, as overall provincial champions, will also feature in the play-offs for the last time, he said.

Alongside Richmond United most of the other provinces have also yielded their women’s league champions. Thunderbird Ladies leads the log in the Eastern Cape while Bloemfontein Celtic are top of the log in the Free State.

In Gauteng Tshwane University of Technology leads as does Durban Ladies in KwaZulu-Natal. In Limpopo First Touch Ladies are in pole position, while in the North West De Scorpion are in the lead.

University of Western Cape Ladies claimed the 2018 Western Cape Sasol League crown after defeating RV United 5-2 at the UWC Stadium this past Saturday. The win also sees UWC finish the season without defeat (played 12, won 11 and drew 1) and also qualify for the upcoming National Women’s Football League.

Mpumalanga Safa president Litheko Marago confirmed recently that the Mpumalanga Sasol champions who are headed to the play-offs are Coal City Wizards.

The current standings in the Sasol Women’s league are indicative of the teams that will also make up the rest of the 12-member professional women’s league in the new year.

Mamelodi Sundowns as well as Bloemfontein Celtic women’s sides are definite members of the elite league as is a team from the University Sports South Africa league.
