Safa president Danny Jordaan made the revelation on Tuesday 22nd August, at a press conference held in Soweto to reaffirm the cooperation agreement between the mother body and La Liga.
"Today we have about 450 000 and we want to get this number to up to a million.
"Women are the majority in this country‚ so women sport is one of the key areas where we need growth.
“It is for this reason that in 2019 we want to have a national league for women’s football where they will play like the PSL and NFD.
"I am not calling it a professional league just yet but a national league because whether it becomes professional or not it will depend on the support it is going to get."
"We have spoken to La Liga and they are happy to give us support and there is a lot of work to be done to make this a reality.”
Jordaan added that the nine provincial Sasol Women’s League winners will be promoted together with Varsity Cup winners and they will join automatic qualifiers Mamelodi Sundowns and Bloemfontein Celtic.
