The Brazilians are now the latest team to confirm their return to the field, however, they’ve since made the trip to Rustenburg as Gauteng experience a rapid increase in their COVID-19 positive cases.

“Mamelodi Sundowns have resumed training, this after more than 100 days after the PSL had suspended the 2019/2020 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the nationwide lockdown,” Sundowns said on their official website.

“The Brazilians arrived at the Royal Marang Sports Complex in Rustenburg to prepare for the resumption of the 2019/20 season. Sundowns had complied with all the stringent COVID-19 Return to Play Protocols and had submitted the same to the PSL before the club was given the green light to commence training.”

“Having to move the team away from the epicentre of the coronavirus was critical for the Brazilians and the North West province was an easy decision, with Mosimane and his technical team being no strangers to Rustenburg having hosted several pre-season training camps here in the past. The venue is one of the best in South Africa and was used by the England team during the FIFA World Cup in 2010.”
