2009–10 SAFA Second Division

  (Redirected from 2009–10 Vodacom League)

The 2009–10 SAFA Second Division season, also known as Vodacom League due to a sponsoring deal at the time, took place in South Africa between August and April. The season was scheduled to begin and end one month earlier than normal, due to the country's 2010 FIFA World Cup preparation. The league is the third tier of South African football, and is divided geographically into five divisions in the Coastal Stream and four divisions in the Inland Stream.
