Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates are hard to separate on the field, but just as hard to separate off of it.

Digital Sports Africa published the list of clubs on the continent with the greatest social media following and the Amakhosi and Buccaneers made the top five.

The prestigious list is topped by Egyptian giants, Al Ahly. Briefly.co.za gathered that the top three places are dominated by North Africa, with Zamalek and Raja Casablanca as well.

Chiefs and Pirates were ranked fourth and fifth respectively.

Mamelodi Sundowns were unlucky, as they just missed out on a top 10 spot.

Interestingly, KickOFF.com reported that the now defunct Platinum Stars still managed to make it into the top 50.

Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that PSL executive member Stan Matthews confirmed that the league will run its course and not be stopped prematurely.

This was in response to speculation that the league could be brought to an end and Chiefs crowned as early champions.
