Amid setting records such as the most points scored in a PSL league season, and also, the most wins in a single league campaign, here’s a look at some of Mamelodi Sundowns most defining moments of the 2023/24 DStv Premiership season.

Uneaten on away soil

While the Brazilians boast having one of the best attacking set-ups in the PSL, the Tshwane side’s defensive record played a major role in securing their 7th league title on the spin. Sundowns conceded just 11 goals this past season, the fewest among any team in South Africa’s top flight. Led by Ronwen Williams in goal, Sundowns have also kept 20 clean sheets, just one shy of Kaizer Chiefs record set in the 2003/04 campaign.

Most league doubles in a season

As the most dominant side in the league, Sundowns also recorded eight league doubles, a record they share alongside Manning Rangers (completed in the 1996/97 season). Downs also jotted down eight league doubles under the tutelage of Pitso Mosimane during the 2015/16 campaign.

Sweeping Chiefs aside

Sundowns were afforded the opportunity to clinch the 2023/24 league title against Kaizer Chiefs on the 2nd of May, of which Rulani Mokwena and company managed to accomplish in devastating fashion. With Amakhosi battling to emulate their glory days, Sundowns ran out as 5-1 victors against Chiefs and were officially crowned 14-time champions of the South African league at the FNB Stadium.
