The First Division South committee has abandoned its appeal against the BFA Disciplinary Committee’s ruling that ordered a re-match between Uniao Flamengo Santos and Mogoditshane Fighters to determine who proceeded to the play-offs.

The committee’s treasurer, Thebeetsile Mokgwa told Mmegi Sport they decided to abandon the ßappeal after a meeting with the BFA executive committee  on Friday.  Mokgwa said appealing the decision would have had an impact on the association. He said in the end, they came up with a solution that would serve the interest of football. The DC ruled the decision, which the committee took regarding the abandoned Fighters and Gantsi Terrors game, was improper.

The committee had awarded Fighters three points for the abandoned match. However, the DC said the committee’s decision should be set aside in its entirety.
