Mamelodi Sundowns is a South African football club based in Pretoria and they play in the top tier of South African football. They are the most successful team in the Premier Soccer League era and are regarded as one of the giants in Africa.

Since the inception of the Premier Soccer League in 1996 Masandawana have won the league title a record ten times, have won the  CAF Champions League in 2016 and were voted CAF Club Of The Year the very same year. They have also won the Nedbank Cup four times, and hold the joint record of three National Football League Championships and they are the only South African team to compete in the FIFA Club World Cup. 

The club’s nickname, The Brazilians, is a reference to their uniforms, which echo those of the Brazilian national team.

The Brazilians play with flair, passion and precision leaving many supporters in awe and opposition in envy thus the team has been dubbed “Bafana ba Style (boys with style) due to the appetizing attractive football they display. Locals refer to this attacking style of play as ‘shoeshine and piano’ which includes combinations of quick, short passes on the ground and this is likened to the Spanish ‘tika-taka’ style as demonstrated by Spanish teams, most notably FC Barcelona.

Mamelodi Sundowns is blessed to have the incredible support of club owner and President, Dr Patrice Motsepe whose unerring dedication and visionary leadership has seen the club grow to where it is today and this shall continue as the club strives to succeed and surpass all expectations, realizing the vision of the club – The Sky is the Limit!
