Shock relegation in South Africa after club docked points

Mbombela United have reportedly been relegated to ABC Motsepe League after being docked points after the end of the 2019/20 campaign.

It was reported earlier last month that TS Sporting who ended up being relegated on a final day on the GladAfrica Championship would appeal against their domestic rivals.

It’s been claimed that Mbombela fielded striker Sabelo Ndzinisa during their first-round fixture in Nelspruit claiming they had signed the player while Sporting insisted the player was still registered to them.

Mbombela has now been found guilty by the Court of Arbitration of Sport (CAS) and thus seen them docked 23 points with Sabelo Ndzanisa banned in professional football for two years.

This means TS Sporting will return to Glad Africa Championship next season and Mbombela United will do down to third-tier of South African football
