NFD TEAM NEWS AND STADIUMS

With Polokwane City and Cape Town Spurs earning promotion to the DSTV Premiership, TTM relegated to the ABC Motsepe League, Black Leopards and Milford FC purchasing the statuses of All Stars FC and Uthongathi FC respectively plus a name change for Venda Football Academy who will now be known as Venda Football Club, it's been a busy period for some clubs who participated in the MFC last season. Added to that mix are the two teams relegated from the DSTV Premiership, Maritzburg United and Marumo Gallants as well as the two new arrivals for the ABC Motsepe League.

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE WINNERS

The 2022/23 football domestic season has come to its end in South Africa with champions crowned, places filled in all the tiers, new faces revealed and for some clubs a re-assessment of a season not quite going to plan.

While Mamelodi Sundowns were crowned Champions of the DSTV Premiership, Marumo Gallants (despite contesting the semi-finals of the CAF Confederation Cup) were automatically relegated to the Motsepe Foundation Championship (NFD).
