Mokwena's side will take on Cape Town City on Saturday, May 25, at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium in Pretoria. After the game, they will receive the trophy.

Speaking ahead of the upcoming game, the Downs boss urged supporters to fill up the stadium, as Manchester City's fans did, Sowetan LIVE reported.

Al Jazeera noted that City beat West Ham United the past weekend to win their fourth title in a row.

"I hope the Sundowns supporters watched Manchester City over the weekend and saw how full the stadium was, even though, of course, they were disappointed that they lost the quarter-finals of the Champions League. There was a huge sense of appreciation for the fourth league title in a row. We've now delivered, this special group has delivered, the seventh league title in a row," he said.

Mokwena then urged the supporters to fill the stadium for the title handover, giving the players the celebration and atmosphere they deserved.

"These moments don't last forever and repeat themselves, so they've got to enjoy them. It's a special period, so the Sundowns' supporters must enjoy it," Mokwena added.

Brazilians chase history against City

The game against City will mark the end of another successful league season for the Pretoria-based side and give them a chance to make history.

If Sundowns win or draw in the fixture, they will become the only South African side to finish a league season without defeat.

Mokwena dedicates league win to club chairman

Sports Brief reported that Mokwena dedicated their seventh successive league title to the club’s chairman.

Thlopie Motsepe is the current chairperson of the champions and son of CAF President, Dr Patrice Motsepe.

The coach described Motsepe as an incredible leader who was always there for them through thick and thin.
