Chippa United are TOP of the DStv Premiership log – it’s true

In their first home match of the 2021/22 DStv Premiership season, Chippa United held defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns to a stunning draw on Tuesday.

After 90 minutes, the match at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium concluded goalless.


Gavin Hunt's side has jumped to the top of the early standings with that point, which comes on top of the three points they earned in their season opener against Sekhukhune United last weekend.

It's a long way from where they finished last season, in 15th place!


The goal, according to Hunt, is to "get to 30 points as rapidly as possible."

Chippa United finished with 27 points in the 2020/21 season, therefore 30 seems like a "safe" figure.


Chippa United will face Royal AM in their next encounter on Sunday, September 12th, and will have a great chance to add to their point total.

In a hard-fought DStv Premiership match at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Gqeberha on Tuesday evening, Chippa United held defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns to a 0-0 draw.


The Brazilians and the Chilli Boys are now in first and second place on the log, respectively, but they could be overhauled by Baroka, Golden Arrows, and Swallows, who are all in play on Wednesday.
