Mining magnate and Mamelodi Sundowns president Patrice Motsepe, has turned his side into one of the power houses of African club football and should be credited for his great efforts.
Sundowns are still ‘homeless’ though. The Brazilians are arguably an international brand now but everyone has a home. A team of Sundowns’ calibre can't afford to share a stadium with a rugby side such as the Blue Bulls. The two teams have been using Loftus Versveld stadium as their home base for both football and rugby matches respectively.
Sundowns is a Mamelodi brand and should play their home matches at home. The HM Pitje Stadium needs to be renovated and become a slaughterhouse for the reigning Premier Soccer League champions.
Bafana Ba Style has been attracting supporters to their home games especially in continental club competitions.
The club can play before a full house if they take their home games to HM Pitje. Mamelodians need a team that belongs to them. It will grant them a sense of belonging.
