JOHANNESBURG - A celebration of history-making Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies is showing that women’s football is becoming more visible.

Interest in the women’s game is still relatively low, especially for a sports-loving nation.

But recent activity suggests things may be looking up, at last.

Earlier this year, Safa secured a naming-rights sponsor for its National Women’s League, the premier division of women’s football in the country.
