YB SENIOR TEAM

Get to know our ABC League Players

The first step into professional adult soccer

Young Bafana is excited to announce our acceptance into the renowned ABC Motsepe League for the 2022-2023 season, the third highest league in South African soccer. During the years of dreaming up YB’s growth in the Helderberg area, having one of our own professional teams has always been a goal. Finally, the day has come and we are so thankful for this opportunity to grow not only Young Bafana but the game of soccer. By having a senior team, we offer our kids the opportunity to get used to adult soccer and develop further to take it to the next level.

The ABC League

The ABC Motsepe league is summed up on the SAFA website as, “the current second division and overall third tier of South African football.

The competition features 144 teams in total, divided into nine divisions which are located within the nine geo-political provinces of South Africa.” To conclude the season each winner of their provision play each other in a season’s closing cup. The winner of this cup receives a promotion into South Africa’s first league. We have a few goals for this team. Our first goal is to create a foundation for professional hopefuls in the area and give them a pitch to display their talents. Our ABC team has the potential of being the first landing spot for those who see a professional future in soccer. Our second goal is to generate an avenue for our academy players to look forward to. Our ABC team will create a clear path to professional football. The last and most ambitious goal of ours is to achieve PSL status by 2029. We think this goal will give us more than enough time to recruit and grow the best players in this area.
