Most of the affiliates for the MTG League, or Thulamela Local Football Association as it was formerly known, will play their final league matches for the current season this weekend.

The Stream A log leaders, Begwa United Brothers, have nothing to lose in their final match. Begwa are already sure of a place in the SAB League. They are leading the pack with 69 points, 16 ahead of Munangwe United Brothers.

Muraga Hazard Hotspurs are also preparing for a new life in the higher division. They are leading Stream B with 66 points. The second-placed Mukoma All Stars have deposited 52 points into their league account to date.

Stream C is led by Tswinga Young Stars, who have 66 points, 12 ahead of Tshiulungoma FC. Even if they lose their last match by whatever margin, Ngovhela XI Experience will be campaigning in the SAB League when the activities for the new season start next month.

Ngovhela are leading Stream D with 78 points. Miluwani Happy Boys are behind them with 66 points.

Tshilapfene Arsenal must beat Ngwenani Manchester United in their last match in order to gain promotion to the SAB League. They will meet at the Ngwenani grounds tomorrow.

Makwarani Frelimo Boys need one point in their last match. They are shining on top of Stream G with 64 points, seven ahead of Vhutalu Mountain Rangers. Mountain Rangers have a match in hand.

Shadani Dangerous Scorpions will also be campaigning in the higher division next season. They are on top of the Stream H league log.

Tshanzhe Pre-Mighty and Ngalavhani FC must win their last matches in order to gain promotion to the SAB League. Unlike in the previous seasons, where the champions from the 10 streams would meet in the Champ of Champs matches in order to determine the overall champions, the champions from the 10 streams will gain automatic promotion to the SAB League this season. This was confirmed by the league’s chairman, Mr Ephraim Singo.
