Mamelodi Sundowns have once again been crowned Premier Soccer League (PSL) champions after their Wednesday night fixture against Cape Town City finished in a goalless draw at Loftus Versfeld.
The result sees Masandawana crowned domestic champions for a record extending fifth consecutive season, and a record extending 12th PSL title.
“What Sundowns has achieved in the last few seasons is unprecedented. Winning the PSL title once in itself is an incredible achievement, but to go on and do it for 5 consecutive seasons is unheard of”, gushed Titans CEO, Dr. Jacques Faul.
“The success at Mamelodi Sundowns is characteristic of a fantastic leadership, and I would like to congratulate the chairman Tlhopane Motsepe, co-coaches Manqoba Mngqithi, Rulani Mokwena, and Steve Komphele, as well as the entire staff and players on their incredible feat”, continued Dr. Faul.
The Bulls on the other hand have far exceeded expectations, as now every single trophy of professional rugby competition in South Africa resides in the trophy cabinets of Loftus Versfeld Stadium, in Pretoria.
The Tshwane based team has dominated every domestic competition, claiming victories in the SA Rugby U20 Championship, Currie Cup, Vodacom Super Rugby Unlocked, SA Rugby U21 Championship, and SA Rugby U19 Championship.
“The achievements of the Bulls this season is simply unbelievable. To be quite honest I’m at a loss for words, I’m not sure if a feat of this magnitude will ever be repeated in South African rugby again”, praised Dr. Faul.
“Congratulations to all the coaches involved from the U19 level right up to the senior team as well as all the players.”
“We are incredibly proud of all the Bulls have achieved and wish them nothing but the best for the seasons ahead”, said the Titans CEO.
It’s been an incredible season of Sport for Tshwane based teams with all the success of the Bulls and Sundowns, added to the 4-Day Series title won by the Momentum Multiply Titans and victories in the Varsity Cup and Varsity Cup Young Guns competitions won by Tuks Rugby and UP-Tuks Young Guns respectively.
“May we all continue to represent this beautiful city well and play a brand of sport that the citizens of Tshwane can be proud of”, finished Faul.
