The statement read: “The Premier Soccer League (PSL) received a request from Mamelodi Sundowns to play an international friendly match against FC Barcelona.

"The match has been arranged to form part of the Nelson Mandela Centenary Celebrations.

"The League has always followed the same approach in respect of friendly matches in particular when these will (or might) impact the League or Cup competitions.

"This request, however, was of extraordinary nature in that it formed part of the Madiba Centenary Celebrations.

"Moreover, it had both direct support both of sponsors Nedbank and Government in light of the nature and importance of the event and the part football plays in bringing South Africans together.

"The Executive Committee of the League granted the requested subject to compliance with all of the relevant requirements of CAF and FIFA and also on the express basis that Mamelodi Sundowns will comply fully with every requirement of SASREA.” 

The match is scheduled to take place next week, Wednesday, at the FNB Stadium.

Overall great performance they displayed this season. They have learned their mistake last season. And sure rectified it going forward into next season. They should build forward on their striking force and defence. Continue playing great football as they did this season.

@PHAZAMISA AKA NGOZI THE RETURN- I thought FNB is a national stadium for all south Africans, and it can be used by any south african team when they see fit, no south african team owns FNB..just like in England Wembley is a national stadium it doesn't belong to any any club.. so just chill..

Ajax was once denied the opportunity to play with Liverpool..and the reason was the league is not over...how windows is allowed is beyond my understanding..really unfair.
