See Bafana Bafana’s hectic 2017 calendar

This year will turn out to be one of the busiest for Bafana Bafana as they will be playing almost every month except in May and December.

 

After no action for three months – since the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia qualifier against Senegal at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in November 2016, which Bafana Bafana won 2-1 – the South African Senior Men’s National Team will return to the field at the end of the first quarter of 2017.

 

First up are two international FIFA dates on the 25th and 28th of March – home and away respectively – with as yet unnamed opponents.

 

In April there will be back to back CHAN qualifiers between the 20th and the 30th.

 

The next outing will be an away clash to Nigeria in the first match of the CAF Africa Cup of Nations 2019 qualifiers on the weekend of 9/10/11 June, followed by an international friendly fixture a few days later (13 June) with an as yet to be named country.

 

July and early August will see the the South Africans continuing with the CHAN qualifiers and likelihood of another international friendly clash at the end of August.

 

September will perhaps be Bafana Bafana’s most hectic period of the year – they resume their 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia qualifiers with back to back clashes against Cape Verde – with the first match away.

 

This will be followed another back to back encounter in the CHAN qualifiers later in the month, with the last qualifier scheduled for the beginning of October.

 

Burkina Faso lies in wait in the penultimate 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia on Saturday, 7 October in South Africa.

 

Bafana Bafana will close the year with perhaps the most important match of their lives when they travel to Senegal for the final match of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia qualfiers set for the weekend of 10/11 November.

 

The draw for the 2018 FIFA World Cup will be held in December.
