2019/20 Absa Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns have unveiled their upgraded logo in celebration of their 50th anniversary.
“Mamelodi Sundowns Football Club is celebrating its 50th anniversary and today is revealing the upgraded logo which has been modernized to reflect the history and journey the Club has embarked on to the pinnacle of African football,” read a statement on the club’s website.
“Over the years, legends have etched their name into history, young talent has transcended to superstardom and the Sundowns Family have been able to live out their dreams on and off the pitch. Mamelodi Sundowns has, over the years, become an entrenched and integral part of the history and aspirations of the people of South Africa and the African Continent.
“Understanding the love and passion that Masandawana have towards their badge, the Club and its supporters decided not to move too far away from their original logo. With that in mind, the Club took a decision in 2019 to give the members of the Mamelodi Sundowns Family the opportunity to participate and to be part of the designing of the logo through a unique and innovative competition.

“The changes include the ribbon being shortened so that the proportion of the crest could be slightly magnified, the ribbon is bolder, the hands are more defined and the centre circle within the logo surrounding the hand has been removed. Some of these changes were necessitated by the modern media and advertising requirements.”
