Sundowns To Receive Guard Of Honour From Seven Teams
Mamelodi Sundowns claimed their sixth consecutive DStv Premiership title with seven games remaining, which means that they will be receiving a guard of honor from seven opponents in their quest to end the season on a high. SuperSport United’s 1-1 draw with Chippa United over the weekend meant that Downs had mathematically sealed the title without even playing.
Mamelodi Sundowns was crowned champions with seven games remaining in the season, and this is a significant achievement in the history of South African football. The Premier Soccer League has confirmed that this will go down in the record books as a title with seven games remaining, despite the controversy that had erupted regarding the matter.
PSL Media Officer Fhatuwani Mpfuni cleared the air by stating that since Sundowns still have seven games to play in the league, the title will be recorded as a triumph with seven games remaining, and not six as was previously speculated.
Sundowns Chasing More Records
Despite winning the league title with seven games to spare, the Brazilians are still chasing records. They will continue their league campaign on Tuesday, hosting Cape Town City, and they are expected to receive a guard of honor from the newly-crowned champions as is customary in South African football.
Seven opponents will likely give Mamelodi Sundowns a guard of honor in the remaining seven games of the season. They are Swallows, Golden Arrows, Richards Bay, AmaZulu, Marumo Gallants, Maritzburg United, and Cape Town City, who will be the first team to pay tribute to the champions on Tuesday.
Mamelodi Sundowns’ achievement of securing the DStv Premiership title with seven games remaining is a remarkable feat and demonstrates their dominance in South African football. As they chase more records in their remaining matches, they are expected to receive a guard of honor from their opponents, a sign of respect for their impressive performance this season.
