The amended version includes the fixtures that were either postponed or abandoned in the first half of the league (period: August- December 2016).
The 2016/17 season has been an extremely challenging season to manage for the League. It has been necessary to take into account external factors such as the Olympic Games, the Africa Cup of Nations, and the impact that Mamelodi Sundowns achievements had on our programme.
The amended fixture list also accommodates the four South African clubs participating in the Caf Champions League and Caf Confederation Cup.
Unfortunately the League has had to make provision for the possible need for further amendments in the month of April/May 2017. The nature of these changes (if any) will, to a large extent, be determined by how our four clubs participating in CAF competitions perform in the initial stages of their respective competitions.
The League has also, with the consent of SAFA, and with a view to address outstanding matches, scheduled the first Absa Premiership fixture in 2017 for Friday, 03 February 2016.
The final games of the season will be played on the 17th of June 2017.
This year’s Nedbank Cup final is scheduled for June 27.
Here are the final fixtures of the season in full:
Kaizer Chiefs vs. Bidvest Wits – FNB Stadium – 15:00
SuperSport United vs. Platinum Stars Lucas Moripe Stadium – 15:00
Golden Arrows vs. Orlando Pirates – Moses Mabhida Stadium – 15:00
