President of the SAFA Capricorn Region Jacky Mogashoa insists his region will be represented by FC Lebash and not Mohlabile United at the Limpopo promotion playoffs to the ABC Motsepe league.

This comes at the back of a SAFA arbitration ruling on Thursday in favour of Mohlabile United. The two clubs have been at loggerheads over who is the rightful team to represent the region in Nkowa-Nkowa, Tzaneen.

The two teams were involved in a SAFA Capricorn inter-playoffs 2022/2023 against each other on 11 June 2023. Lebash were accused of using an illegible player during the match and subsequently charged. But they emerged victorious on their appeal at SAFA National against the decision of the Regional Disciplinary Committee of Capricorn.

The appeal committee ruled in favour of Lebash FC for a non-compliant Protest lodged by Mohlabile United. But United took the matter to SAFA arbitration which ruled in their favour. This led to many believing that Mohlabile would represent the region in Nkowa-Nkowa, but not according to Mogashoa.


“We received the award and it is straightforward, it says Lebash forfeits the points of that particular match. Indeed when they forfeit the points of that particular match, the one point which they got from that match then they got six points which they earned.

“The other team earned less than six points. So Lebash remains the number one team which will represent SAFA Capricorn region in the playoffs in Nkowa-Nkowa.
