We continue our league projections for the 2013-14 European season, starting with the decidedly non-European league in South Africa.

We introduce league projections on Soccermetrics for over 20 leagues that follow the European calendar.  Most of these leagues are in Europe, of course, but there are also leagues in the Americas, Africa, and Asia that also follow such a schedule.
