Will the lockdown effect on Mamelodi Sundowns salaries?

The prolonged interruption of all football activities will certainly hurt many football players. Which is why most of them are convinced that Mamelodi Sundowns salaries will be affected. The Pretoria Football Club is one of the richer clubs in South Africa. But even so, they will not avoid the negative effect of the coronavirus.

Cyril Ramaphosa announced the blockade from the 27th of March to the 16th of April. As a result, the PSL League will continue with matches once the crisis is over. PSL matches have not been played for some time to protect players and everyone else. The negative effects of the whole situation will be most felt by Sundowns and Black Leopards. This mostly concerns the next 21 days of self-isolation as both clubs provide bonuses based on what they show on the field.

In addition to being paid to play, Pretoria players receive bonuses for each win. The amount can rise to R30 000 per month, depending on league wins. The technical team, as well as the players, usually share all the prize money if they win the big competition. To win the Nedbank Cup, they only need two more matches.

How will problems with coronavirus affect on Mamelodi Sundowns salaries?

Supposedly Lidoda Duhha for all wins pays each player R10 000. Each member can get an additional R60 000 if they win in all six of their last matches. The Orlando Pirates, Kaizer Chiefs, SuperSport United don’t get bonuses for the games they won, but only for the big trophies.


Because the coronavirus has affected everyone in sports, it is expected that they will also feel financial problems when the health crisis finally passes. In the end, all those clubs that paid special extras for each match won will feel the most.

On the PSL table, the situation is currently like this: Kaizer Chiefs have 48 points and currently have the highest chance of winning the title. Although it is not easy for them in this situation, it certainly helps a small but important advantage.

Sundowns, though lately well listed on betway South Africa, have 4 points less. SuperSport United and Orlando Pirates have the same number of points, while Maritzburg United have one point less. Once the crisis is over, it will be interesting to see who will eventually have the best psl results and standings.
