Metropolitan SASFA U16 Play-Offs hit Gauteng

Eight regional winners from around the province of Gauteng will gather at the Bram Fischer Multi-Purpose Centre in Roodepoort on 3 August 2013, to battle it out for provincial honors for the Metropolitan SASFA U16 Cup Provincial Playoffs.

The scene was set for the Gauteng provincial playoffs when NTSU S.S SCHOOL beat HTS LOUIS BOTHA 2 – 1 on penalties in the final of the Free State leg of the Metropolitan SASFA U16 Cup provincial title on 27 July 2013. The two schools will now advance to the Metropolitan SASFA U16 National final which takes place later this year. 

After a challenging elimination process, Mosupatsela High from Kagiso in Krugersdorp, Rosina Sedibane from Laudium in Pretoria, SAFA Transnet Sport School of Excellence from Elandsfontein in Ekurhuleni North, Thandi Sibeko from Duduza in Gauteng East, JHB Secondary from Page view in JHB North, Chipa Tabane from Ekangala in Gauteng North and Tetelo Secondary from JHB Central will be competing to progress to the national finals later this year.       

The top two schools in each province automatically progress to the national showpiece where they will vie to be the best in the country.

According to Metropolitan’s Brand Executive Belinda Faulkner, Sports development is a crucial platform to engage with the youth of South Africa. “Sponsorships such as these help young aspiring soccer players to gain some much needed exposure as Metropolitan’s objectives are guided by the principles of collaborative partnership, engagement, long-term sustainability and relevance.”

President of the South African Schools Football Association and SAFA Vice-President, Mandla ‘Shoes’ Mazibuko added, “Metropolitan has a long history of supporting development football in South Africa. Success of national teams is dependent on identifying and growing talent at an early age. Only a handful of companies are prepared to support development football and we are pleased that Metropolitan remains committed to this sponsorship.”

In keeping with their holistic policy of community youth development, a Life Skills component forms part of every Metropolitan-sponsored tournament. A team of CSI specialists will travel to each province to address the entire student body of the winning schools to provide financial and health education.

The action gets under way at the Bram Fischer Multi-Purpose Centre in Roodepoort at 09h00 with the finals taking place in the afternoon. Both finalists will qualify for the national championship later this year.
