Nothing could separate the teams in a 0-0 stalemate at full-time, so Cape Town City and SuperSport United went to penalties.
The Citizens won the shootout 4-1, as Benni McCarthy lifted his first trophy as a coach.
Here's how South African football reacted to City's glory in Durban, including legends and the media. The highlight has to be these videos of Cape Town City with the trophy.
