Stellenbosch FC have been promoted to the Absa Premiership for the first time in history.
The Western Cape club were crowned champions of the lower National First Division (NFD) after today’s goalless draw with Maccabi FC.
Known as ‘Maties,' the club was formed in 2016 after buying Vasco da Gama’s status in the NFD. Steve Barker's men claimed the 56-point success after 16 wins, eight draws and six losses from the league's 30 games.
“CONGRATULATIONS @StellenboschFC. Welcome to the #AbsaPrem,” said the PSL via social media.
