HISTORY will be made tomorrow when soccer players and administrators in Soweto march to Safa headquarters.

Sowetans will demand that the Soweto Football Association (SFA) be granted regional status by the mother body, a request they first made eight years ago.

SFA secretary Peter Thusane said: "The main thing we want is to be granted regional status.

"We have been sent from pillar to post about our request.

"A task team was appointed by the previous Safa leadership, but we don't even know what happened. Our letters are ignored, hence the decision to march.

"The exclusion of a Soweto team from the SAB League playoffs is also an issue."

Safa top brass could not be reached for comment last night.
