South African Football Association (SAFA) has congratulated Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies for winning the inaugural CAF Women’s Champions League COSAFA Region title after beating Zimbabwe’s Black Rhinos 3-0 in Durban on Saturday, 4 September 2021.
The reigning South African Hollywoodbets Super League champions finished the qualifiers undefeated during the COSAFA tournament and will be heading to Cairo, the Egyptian capital for the continental championships, brimming with confidence to become the first African women club champions.
‘’I would like to congratulate Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies for once again hoisting the South African flag high during the CAF Women’s Champions League COSAFA Region qualifiers. They made a statement of intent,’’ said SAFA President, Dr. Danny Jordaan.
‘’Now they need to go all the way in the continental championships and become the first women club on the continent to be crowned African champions. They showed their potential during the COSAFA qualifiers and at this rate, only the sky can be the limit to what they can achieve,’’ he added.
Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies won the inaugural Women’s National League now known as Hollywoodbets Super League and are currently top of the log standings with an unbeaten record and are favourites to retain their domestic title.
