B-Division promotional finals set

The B-Division national promotion finals will be played in Mafeteng on the weekend of May 14 and 15. The finals will feature the winners of the B-Division’s three regions – northern, central and southern – as well as the champions of this year’s tournament host, Mafeteng.

The winners of the northern and central districts have already been decided.

The finals for the northern region contested by Leribe, Butha-Buthe and Mokhotlong were held two weekends ago in Mokhotlong and were won by Butha-Buthe’s Maisa.

Swallows players celebrate a winner against Lioli in 2010.
The club has a chance to take a step back towards the top-flight.

The central region finals for Maseru, Berea and Thaba-Tseka were played last Saturday and were won by Swallows of Mazenod, Maseru who were relegated from the Vodacom Premier League in 2011.

The southern region qualifies will be played this Saturday in Quthing. They will be contested by the champions of Mohale’s Hoek, Quthing and Qacha’s Nek.

Mafeteng is the host of the national finals this year and therefore its champion, Mafeteng LMPS, also has the chance to win promotion to the A-Division.

The draw for the finals has already been made. Hosts Mafeteng LMPS will face Swallows in the first semi-final; Maisa will play against the winner of the southern region in the other semi.

The two teams that progress to the final of the tournament will win promotion to the first division.
