A busy weekend lies ahead of the teams affiliated with the Hollywoodbets Super League. Most of the matches will be played at different venues throughout the country on Saturday, while only two will be seen on Sunday afternoon.
Residents of Giyani and the surrounding areas will have the privilege to watch some first-grade football on their doorstep. Their home team, Maindis Ladies, will play on their home turf on Saturday. They will host Durban Ladies at the Giyani Stadium. Maindis were the visitors in their midweek fixture against Golden Ladies that was played at the Chatsworth Stadium in Durban on Wednesday afternoon. The result of their match against Golden Ladies was not available at the time of our going to press.
Maindis did the unexpected when they rose to the occasion and held Bloemfontein Celtic to a goalless draw at the Dr Molemela Stadium in Bloemfontein last Sunday. Should they manage to collect full points on Saturday, Maindis are likely to jump to the fourth position on the log standings. They are currently lying in the seventh spot on the log with 14 points (The result of their midweek fixture against Golden Ladies not included).
First Touch Ladies will travel to Johannesburg. Their match against JVW FC will be played at the Dobsonville Stadium. The pace setters, Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies, are preparing for a home fixture against Coal City Wizards that will be played at the Loftus Stadium in Pretoria. Vasco da Gama will fly from Cape Town to Johannesburg. Their match against Thunderbirds Ladies will be played at the Tsakane Stadium. Tsunami Queens will entertain University of Western Cape (UWC) at the Puma Rugby Stadium in Emalahleni. TUT Football Club will enjoy the home-ground advantage in their match against University of Johannesburg Ladies at the TUT Campus Stadium.
Sunday’s fixtures are Bloemfontein Celtic vs Golden Ladies and Richmond United vs City Lads.
