Polelo "Magic" Masola, chairman of the Limpopo Softball Association (LSA)'s organising committee, says it's all systems go for Softball South Africa's national championships in Polokwane in March.

It will be the second time that LSA hosts the event since its inception in 1993.

Masola, whose association hosted the event in 1999, reckons they have made thorough preparations to ensure that they stage a terrific spectacle.

"We are working in tandem with all the stakeholders around Polokwane and are grateful for the support we have been getting from them," Masola said.

The organising committee comprises members from the provincial department of sport, the local government, the Limpopo Academy of Sport and the Capricorn district municipality, among others.

They are also working closely with various parastatals, which include LimDev, who have pumped in a whopping R1,1 million towards the LSA Super League over a three-year period.

The eagerly anticipated event pitches off on March 19 and the finals will be played five days later.

Masola said six SSA provinces have confirmed their participation so far.

The provinces are Central Gauteng, Eastern Gauteng, Northern Gauteng, Western Province, KwaZulu-Natal and Eastern Cape.

An invitational side from Namibia is also expected to compete in the showpiece.
