The two winners will then play in the final at 13h00. There will be no third and fourth playoff; according to the organizers.

The winning school stands to win prize money, floating trophy and gold medals, so does the semi-finalists, respectively.

“There’s no doubt that the qualities learnt on the football field are synonymous with life. Through the league, we aim to instill qualities such as determination, fair play, tenacity and focus.

If these qualities can be learnt and applied on and off the field, we believe we would have given them a great platform on which to journey through life,” says Thembiso Mashele, Investec CSI consultant managing the league.

Investec, an international specialist bank and asset manager with offices worldwide, has provided teams with support through the provision of kits and football clinics.

A celebrity football guest speaker will give presentation.
