Help make the beautiful game even more beautiful
Football, or soccer as it is locally known, is enjoyed by South Africans of every background – Often you’ll find the biggest fans in areas where pitches resemble sand pits and goal posts and nets exist only in the imagination of the players – kids dream of playing for Barcelona or local sides like Orlando Pirates & Ajax Cape Town.
Against this backdrop in the town of Hout Bay a new team has been born: Hout Bay United Football Community.
You read it right. We are more than just another club, we are the first charitable Football Community in the World.
And we are here for all people, of all ability, no matter where they live or where they’re from.
It’s our aim to unite the people of Hout Bay through the ‘Beautiful Game’.
You can download this strategy document to find out more about how we are structuring our community and developing football and coaching in the valley.
To achieve our goals we’ll help develop football through every level. At the foundation we plan a broad range of social programs to support our community using football as the catalyst. Mentorship and education will provide the backbone running throughout the organisation at every level.
The mid level will support existing Organisations, Leagues and Affiliations that currently boast over 30 well established teams. We can assist with logistics, management, organisation, sponsorship and coaching for players and more importantly coaches. Our hope is to foster and mentor talent from each corner of Hout Bay.
For the most promising we provide an outlet at the Elite level. We have a franchise team, in the SAFA SAB League Division 3 and a professional coaching staff.
This adds focus to all the projects and gives every player something to aspire to.
