Mamelodi Sundowns have announced the appointment of Christa Kgamphe-Jane as the Head of Women’s Football.

“She will provide strong leadership and guidance to the coaches, players and staff within the team, fostering a culture of excellence, inclusivity and professionalism.

“Beyond strategy formulation, Kgamphe-Jane will also play a pivotal role in identifying and nurturing the next generation of talent. This strategic move ensures that a steady pipeline of talented players is nurtured within the Sundowns system.”
