Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns are undoubtedly the preeminent forces of modern South African football.
KAIZER CHIEFS ARE STILL THE HISTORICAL GOAT
To this day, Kaizer Chiefs remain the most decorated team in South African football history with 55 trophies to their name. The 13-time champions, however, haven’t been the best team in the land since the 2014-15 campaign.
SUNDOWNS ARE DOMINANT THIS MILLENNIUM
The Brazilians have won eight of the last 10 DStv Premiership titles including six in a row. The last team other than Sundowns to win the league in South Africa was Bidvest Wits in 2017 The next frontier for Sundowns will be to become champions of Africa again, a feat they last achieved in 2016 under Pitso Mosimane.
ORLANDO PIRATES TRYING TO PUSH THE BRAZILIANS OFF THEIR PERCH
With two domestic cup crowns in 2022-23, the next step for Pirates is to mount a legit title challenge. Their last PSL crown came all the way back in 2012.
