The Premier Soccer League wished Mamelodi Sundowns well as they departed for the Fifa Club World Cup in Japan.

The Brazilians are the first South African side to participate in the competition. They will take on the winners in the match between Kashima Antlers and Auckland City on 11 December.

For PSL acting chief executive Mato Madlala this is a great moment in the history of South African football, and he hopes Pitso Mosimane’s side can replicate their form in the CAF Champions League.

‘There is lot of significance in the journey Mamelodi Sundowns is embarking on. It is a special moment for Southern Africa and, of course, our League,’ said Madlala.

‘The participation in the Fifa Club World Cup will undoubtedly bring South African domestic professional football in the spotlight. We trust that Mamelodi Sundowns will represent us well and replicate the form that saw them win the CAF Champions League trophy.

‘On behalf of all the members of the National Soccer League, we would like to wish Mamelodi Sundowns the best of luck.’
