“The Gauteng Monday League plays a significant role in our football and we are excited to kick-off the season next week. One of the fundamental roles of this league is to afford fringe players or players coming from an injury lay-off an opportunity to get game-time. The reality of football is, players can only get better by playing regularly,” Blanckensee said.

The Gauteng Monday League will kick-off on Monday, 10 December 2012 with a clash between Soweto rivals, Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates – ironically 48 hours after the two sides would have contested the Absa Premiership Soweto Derby at FNB Stadium. They will play their GML fixture at Eldorado Stadium.

On the same day, Jomo Cosmos will play Moroka Swallows at Robertsham Sports Grounds. Both fixtures will kick-off at 15h00.

At 16h00, SuperSport United will play University of Pretoria at Groenkloof Campus.
