Nobody seems to have compiled a list of the top twenty richest football players in South Africa, so it is quite difficult to give you a current list.

The wealth of the footballers may change year on year with one player being more popular or successful in one year and then perhaps being less successful the following year. The amount the footballers earn will depend on factors such as the team they are playing for, any sponsorship deals they may have and if they are well known in the international football field.

Taking this into account, some of the names mentioned for the richest footballers in South Africa can be found below. It should be noted though, that since this answer was published, these players may have seen their wealth overtaken by the earnings of another player. In addition, this list should not be evaluated as being in order of the amount these players earn:

- Tekko Modise: Born in 1982 in Soweto, Gauteng. The player is currently playing for the South African team Mamelodi Sundowns. He also plays for the national team making him a very well known player in the country.
- Benni McCarthy: Born Benedict Saul McCarthy in 1977 in Cape Town. Although he is currently not with a club, he has played for the national team in the past, scoring many goals.
- Simphiwe Stabalala: Born in Phiri in 1984. This player is currently playing for South African side Kaizer Chiefs.

As it stands, Steven Pienaar is the richest South African football (soccer) player. 

He earns $5-million (R49-million) a year, even more than famed athlete Oscar Pistorius was making (before he was accused of shooting his girlfriend).

But the homegrown stars of bafana bafana are still some way from reaching the mega millions that rich clubs from La Liga and the Premier League can afford to pay,
