Mamelodi Sundowns Equal Kaizer Chiefs’ League Unbeaten Record

This victory marked the 31st consecutive league match without a loss for Sundowns, a record previously held solely by Kaizer Chiefs since 2005.

Comparing The Records

Comparing this remarkable achievement to Chiefs’ record-breaking run in 2005, we find notable distinctions.

Chiefs, at that time, won 15 and drew 16 of their 31 league matches, eventually seeing their unbeaten streak come to an end in November 2005.

Sundowns’ record-breaking feat is characterized by a higher number of wins, highlighting their dominance in South African football.

The Man Behind Mamelodi Sundowns’ Unbeaten Run

Behind this incredible success story is Rhulani Mokwena, who has been at the helm of Sundowns for 42 matches across all competitions.
