Stellenbosch FC Back In PSL Following NFD Title Win

Stellenbosch FC won promotion back to the Absa Premiership after been crowned National First Division Champions at the Idas Valley Stadium on Sunday.

Stellies were held to a 0-0 draw by Maccabi which was enough to see them return to top-flight football after second-placed Royal Eagles were narrowly beaten 1-0 by Ubuntu Cape Town.

Steve Barker’s charges came into the tie on 55 points, two behind Eagles on 53, and needed just a point in order to secure first place and they did just that.

Eagles will be joined by Tshakuma Tsha Madzivhandila, who defeated Richards Bay 2-0, in the promotion playoffs.

Despite their narrow 1-0 win over Eagles, Ubuntu saw themselves join Witbank Spurs as they got relegated to the ABC Motsepe League.

The promotional playoffs will start on Wednesday, 15 May.
