πŸ‡ΏπŸ‡¦βœŒπŸΎβ˜ οΈπŸ‘†πŸΎHere are all 16 PSL club nicknames (2019/20)

Mzansi football is big on nicknames - especially players.

But not every player at every club has a nickname (a bit unfair). However - and thank God, each and every single club has a nickname of its own. Do you know all 16 this season?

Some clubs are so charismatic and popular they have more than one nickname. Some clubs have nicknames we wish had just a bit more imagination.

But let’s take a look at which names have the best ring to them, imagination, passion, and inspiration in Mzansi.

We’ve also added in our ratings for each club nickname...
