Social media alerts SAFA to open investigation into match-fixing in women’s league

November 15 – South African football officials, plagued over the years by match-fixing scandals, insist they will speedily investigate the latest claims – this time in a regional game of the country’s premier women’s league, Sasol.

Super Falcons chairman Bob Maredi told  he suspected foul play in a Gauteng Sasol League title decider with Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies.

In a statement the South African Football Association (SAFA) said it had “noted, with great concern, complaints that have been circulating on social media where coaches and players in the Provincial Women’s League made allegations of biased refereeing in one of the qualification matches.

“SAFA has also received complaints from the aggrieved parties and has instituted a thorough investigation into the matter and will work speedily to get to the bottom of the issue in time for the National Championships.”
