Best FIFA 23 DStv Prem Ballers

Soweto giants Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs were joined by SA football pace setters Mamelodi Sundowns in EA's final instalment of the FIFA series. 

The local ballers obviously weren't rated anywhere near as high as the world class ballers based in Europe, but a number of them came close with 70 overall ratings, mainly from DStv Prem winners Mamelodi Sundowns.

Kaizer Chiefs have a mere three players rated over 70, two of them being goalkeepers, Brandon Peterson (70) and veteran Itumeleng Khune (71) and the third player being Edmilson Dove (70). 

The Buccaneers have six players rated over 70; Richard Ofori (72), Olisa Ndah (70), Deon Hotto (73), Thembinkosi Lorch (73), Vincent Pule (72) and Kermit Erasmus (70).

Masandawana boast a staggering 14 players with an overall rating of 70 and above, showing the gap in quality between Sundowns and the Soweto Giants.

Here are the top five rated DStv Prem players on FIFA 23, who have done well to back it up in real life this season: 

5. Deon Hotto (73)

4. Thembinkosi Lorch (73)

3. Ronwen Williams (73)

2. Peter Shalulile (74)
