Gavin Hunt (L) and Paul Johnstone (assistant coach) celebrate as Bidvest Wits' title win.

The completion of the 2016/17 league season in South Africa means the match-ups in the quarterfinals of the lucrative MTN8 competition in the next campaign are now known.

The MTN8 is the first piece of silverware on offer in the 2017/18 season and comes with a hefty R8-million (approximately US$600,000) first prize, a fortune considering the league winners over a 30-game season win just R2-million more than that.

The South African league title has already gone to Bidvest Wits, but the race for the potentially lucrative top eight spots, the battle to avoid the drop, and the question of who will grab the final African Champions League qualification spot, make for an intriguing final round of matches in the Absa Premiership on Saturday.

It is a sign of the gripping 2016/17 season in South Africa that 12 of the 16 top flight sides are still fighting for position going into the final day. Fans will need to have...


Jubilant Bidvest Wits end long wait for first PSL title

Bidvest Wits claimed a first South African league title in the club's 96-year history on Wednesday as they defeated Polokwane City 2-0 in a PSL clash at the BidVest Stadium.

That result, coupled with a surprise 2-2 draw for African champions Mamelodi Sundowns, leaves Wits with an unassailable four-point lead at the top of the table with just a single round of matches to play.

BidVest Wits coach Gavin Hunt has warned his side not to get ahead of themselves as they close in on a first South African league title in the club's 96-year history.

All three clubs have three matches remaining. Cape Town City has a tough task away from home on Tuesday against SuperSport...
