πŸ‡ΏπŸ‡¦πŸ†β³ PSL champions since the first season in 1973: Chiefs, Sundowns tied on 12 titles

Since the rebranding of the NSL to the PSL in 1996, Mamelodi Sundowns has a big lead of titles: Nine championships to Kaizer Chiefs & Orlando Pirates’ respective four titles each.

But what do we see when we go right back to the first league competition in 1973-74?

Well, most Sundowns fans won’t be happy to note Amakhosi have lifted the same number of trophies since then, while Pirates followers will hate to see themselves seven titles behind the two clubs.

According to the leading German statistical records website, Transfermarkt, Sundowns and Chiefs are unseparated at the top:

  • Chiefs: 12 titles
  • Sundowns: 12 titles
  • Pirates: Five titles
  • SuperSport United: Three titles
  • Bidvest Wits: One title
  • Manning Rangers: One title

In checking out the order of events, below is a list of all the titles in reverse order, from the Premier Soccer League of last season to 1973’s National Soccer League:

  • 18/19 Sundowns
