Dr. Patrice Motsepe, the creator of the ABC Motsepe league and the head of the Confederation of African Football, attended the final in Potchefstroom and promised a major change for the next season.

“In youth and development football, the key difficulty is resources. “We plan to increase the prize money to R3 million next season so that clubs can generate more young players and meet their demands to produce better football,” Dr Motsepe stated.

Nala Ngcobo of Spear of the Nation (EC) won the tournament’s top goal scorer title, while Lesego Sebetlela of MM Platinum was named player of the tournament.

Both players also earned R100 000 for their performances.
