Our finalists, vying for the championship title, will compete on 21 March at Ext 9, Phase 1, Hazulu Ground.

Despite facing challenges within the Orange Farm Local Football Association (OFLFA), where he was a member in good standing, Mr. Nhlapo’s commitment never wavered. When we established the PLPDL community football league and competition NPC, he was our staunch supporter from day one. It’s only fitting that our league pays homage to his invaluable contributions.”
