PODCAST - CHANGE IS INEVITABLE

NFD 2017/18 - WEEK 01 PREVIEW

A new season. Highlands Park rejoin the NFD community again after their relegation from the PSL, while two newcomers have progressed from the ABC Motsepe League. A warm welcome to Uthongathi FC from KZN and Super Eagles from the Free State. We wish you a pleasant stay in the NFD. There have been other changes too – Defending NFD champions Thanda Royal Zulu sold their PSL status to KZN rivals Amazulu and then changed their name to Richards Bay FC.

CHANGE IS INEVITABLE

Change is inevitable and no more so than on the National First Division who changed from a four stream competition in the 1996/97 season to a Coastal/Inland system a year later. This system continued up until the start of the 2011/12 season when 16 teams made up the NFD single stream system. This is currently in use today.

Change had not been seen only in the league structure and over the years many teams have come and gone.
