“KwaZulu-Natal has a total of 11 regions with each having its own women’s regional league. Regional leagues are made up of teams that have made their way up the ranks from local leagues run by local football associations. Through these regional provincial play-offs, two teams are promoted to the Sasol Women’s Provincial League. The first two placed finishers of the play-offs of the Sasol Women’s Provincial League are promoted to the Hollywoodbets Women’s National League,” said the department.

It added that the South African Football Association in partnership with Sasol and Hollywoodbets organise the top two tiers of women’s football.

“These leagues allow the Banyana Banyana technical team to scout and select the best players for the country’s various national teams and gives recognition to the ever-growing spectacle of women’s football. The league has and continues to afford many women footballers an opportunity to showcase their talent in terms of being scouted by teams both in KZN and outside of the province,” said the department.
