The soccer off-season is usually a time for team owners of the Local Football Associations (LFA), the South African Breweries (SAB) Regional League and the Vodacom League to sit down and plan for the new season that starts in August.
Mosesetjane All Stars FC, champions of the SAB Waterberg Regional League in the last season, shocked fans when they announced that their SAB status, like that of Simple Yellows, was for sale.
The surprise did not end there. Mr John Molomo, owner of Mosesetjane All Stars, told The BEAT that he was thinking of buying the Vodacom side, Dinare FC. Dinare FC also announced recently that their Vodacom status was for sale.
“I am expecting to finish the transaction between myself and Dinare FC management during the course of the next week,” Molomo said.
Dinare FC is one of the more controversial teams in the Vodacom League.
They hail from Gauteng, but were based in Modimolle during the course of the last season.
Unfortunately, they did not have a very good season.
Dinare Fc is the second team who relocated to the Waterberg after originally starting in the Gauteng region.
Leventis FC also relocated to Bela Bela, but moved back to Gauteng after they encountered financial difficulties. They have since been kicked out of the SAB League for missing too many games.
When The BEAT asked about the future of Mosesetjane All Stars FC, Molomo said that the team was for sale and that any interested buyers could call him at any time to negotiate.
If someone outside Mokopane buys Mosesetjane FC and Simple Yellow’s, this will leave Mokopane with only five teams in the SAB Regional Waterberg League.
