The Premier Soccer League (PSL) today, Monday 16 November 2020 released the 2020/21 GladAfrica Championship fixtures.

The opening fixture of the 2020/21 season will be on Friday, 27 November 2020 between last season’s runners-up, Cape Town Spurs, formerly known as Ajax Cape Town, and Polokwane City at Idas Valley Stadium in Cape Town.

Kick-off is at 15h30.

Cape Town Spurs had an oh-so-close finish during last season’s GladAfrica Championship where they led the log standings until the last two weeks of the campaign. There is no doubt that they will be coming back to redeem themselves in the 2020/21 season. Polokwane City, on the other hand, will be hoping to register positive results following a difficult campaign last season which led to their relegation.

There will be three fixtures on Saturday and two fixtures on Sunday.

On Saturday, Free State Stars will begin their journey to reclaim their place in the DStv Premiership when they host Uthongathi at Goble Park. Uthongathi had an impressive start to the previous season only to fade towards the end.

At the same time, Sekhukhune United will make their GladAfrica Championship debut appearance against Royal AM – another new name in the GladAfrica Championship. TS Sporting and Cape Umoya United game will complete Saturday’s fixture list. They will play at Kabokweni Stadium in Mpumalanga.

On Sunday, Cape Town All Stars – another familiar name making a return in the GladAfrica Championship – will play at home against JDR Stars at Parrow Park.

The last fixture of the opening weekend will see University of Pretoria (TUKS) play against Richards Bay at TUKS Stadium in Tshwane.

Kick-off for all the opening weekend fixtures are at 15h30.

Newly-promoted sides, Bizana Pondo Chiefs from the Eastern Cape and Pretoria Callies from Gauteng will make their #GladAfricaChampionship debuts on the weekend of 05 and 06 December 2020.
