South African Premier Division Stats Now on FBref

Posted by Alex Bonilla on August 13, 2019

FBref continues to add coverage of domestic leagues around the world, this time with the introduction of our South African Premier Division statistics. We have player statistics for this league back to the 2015-16 season, and we are keeping track of the 2019-20 season which just kicked off this month.

One name to keep an eye on in Europe is Lyle Foster, an 18-year-old who's already made a start for Monaco's Ligue 1 squad. In his age-16 season he made 9 league appearances with Orlando Pirates in the Premier Division, recording 1 goal and 1 assist. Club Brugge is in the middle of the Champions League qualifying rounds, and has Percy Tau on their side. Tau led the Premier Division with 11 goals helping Mamelodi Sundowns to a league title.
