The SAFA Second Division and overall 3rd tier, currently known as ABC Motsepe League after Patrice Motsepe named the competition in honour of his late father, Augustine Butana Chaane Motsepe.
Currently it features 144 teams in total, divided into 9 divisions after the 9 provinces of South Africa: Eastern Cape, Free State, KwaZulu Natal, Northern Cape, Western Cape, Gauteng, Limpopo, Mpumalanga and North West. This means, that each Provincial division contains 16 teams as standard. The winner of each Provincial division qualifies for the annual Promotional Play-offs, where the winners of two streams, will get promoted to the National First Division. In each Province, the two lowest ranked teams by the end of the season, will be relegated to U21 SAB Regional League, which in return will promote two play-off winners from the Regional Championships.
