Chiefs are the most consistent PSL club

Posted: 19 September 2013 Time: 03:36 pm

With three League titles, four second place finishes and five third place finishes, Kaizer Chiefs are the most consistent club since the inception of the PSL.

Since the inaugural PSL season in 1996/97, Amakhosi have lost the fewest League matches; less than any other ever-present club. The Glamour Boys have lost 102 matches of 534, while Orlando Pirates have lost 105 in the same number of matches.

Although Mamelodi Sundowns hold the most League titles won in the PSL era – five – they have lost 130 matches (25 more than Orlando Pirates and 28 more than Kaizer Chiefs) in 534, meaning the Brazilians have accumulated fewer points than the Soweto giants since 1996.

As of the end of 2012/13 season, Mamelodi Sundowns have accumulated 924 points in 534 matches, while Kaizer Chiefs have 950 and Orlando Pirates 945.

Unsurprisingly, Bidvest Wits holds the record for the most draws – the Students have drawn 174 of 404 matches.

This is not news to a myriad of KC supporters. This is why we believe in this institution so much. We've telling the doubting thomases that, We Are FootBall, We Make This Game.

This article is just going to invoke jelousy; statistics dont lie, hoping the matter now is put to rest.
