SuperSport United have firmly established themselves as one of the top club’s in the country, attracting the best players and coaches to the capital.
Often regarded as a selling club in the past, Matsatsantsa can now compete with the ‘big three’ when it comes to luring top talent.

In Eric Tinkler, the Tshwane club have an ever improving coach who has made huge strides in the past few seasons.
Having emerged as a budding assistant coach at Bidvest Wits and Orlando Pirates - Tinkler guided the Buccaneers to a CAF Confederations Cup final before leading Cape Town City to Telkom Knockout glory and a third place finish in the Absa Premiership, in what was the club's debut campaign.
