For a long time, the country played second fiddle to continental giants Nigeria. Now South African women's football is reaping the rewards of its Vision 2022 strategy to grow the women's game.

On November 19, Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies made a giant leap as they won the inaugural CAF Women's Champions League title. The South African club defeated Ghana's Hasaacas Ladies 2-0 at Cairo's June 30 Stadium with goals from Chuene Morifi and Andisiwe Mgcoyi.

There were no fans inside the arena, but it did not dampen the enthusiasm of the Mamelodi Ladies, who celebrated their title with gleeful joy.

It is the most significant success that the team has achieved since it was founded in 2009 as a semi-professional club, a women's arm of the famous Mamelodi Sundowns, to give women and girls opportunities to play football.

The CAF Women's Champions League wants to give women footballers on the continent more opportunities to play professionally after years of overlooking them. Read more.
