South African football fans often underestimate the reach of football into parts of the world. Over the past years with the help of social media we've seen teams like Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates appear in places we would've never thought possible. The reality is that it is one of the best leagues in the world and there's certainly some eyes who are interested in watching the PSL for different reasons.
The leadership of Dr Irvin Khoza as PSL chairman has helped elevate the league into a lucrative business. We've seen an increase in big brand pumping into the league and in turn increasing the value. Even teams that are considered as bottom tier are able to make money from playing in the PSL through sponsorship deals and collaborations.
A picture was shared on social media showing an Asian extended seen donning Baroka FC jerseys. This was shared by Be Football on social media as the confirmed that the club indeed has a supporter's brand in China. This left many fans confused over how this could've came about.
The family clearly supports in some form as they were all spotted in Baroka FC gear. This is something that is unexpected and shows nowthat not only the big 3 have the ability of crossing borders and touching people outside of South Africa or at least the traditional supporter of the club which is mainly people from Limpopo.
The owner of the club Khurishi Mphahlele is a gear business and it is amazing to see what he has done with the club. Baroka went from making cameos in the Nedbank Cup to being a soilid name in the PSL. They also have a big trophy in their cabinet and have established a reputation of being a giant slayer.
This is something we don't see a lot in South African football more especially with the new trends of buying PSL status. They are the perfect example of an institution that started fromtbeh very bottom and worked their way up to the top and symbolize to many others that it is possible.
