Named after Dr Patrice Motsepe’s late father, the ABC Motsepe League is the current second division and overall third tier of South African football. The competition features 144 teams in total, divided into nine divisions which are located within the nine geo-political provinces of South Africa. The league was established to provide a structured platform on which soccer players can showcase their skills to an audience of national coaches and talent scouts.

The Motsepe Foundation, together with the South African Football Association (SAFA), introduced this platform to identify players for the South African national football teams (u/17, u/20, u/23 and the senior team) nationally.
