Our impact

More than a team. Bigger than the game.

“What HBUFC have created is very special. I’m a fan, I watch their games when I can. Because I live in Hout Bay, it means so much to me that the club is for the people. It works so hard for the community. What it stands for, how it operates reminds me of the big clubs in England & Italy”

Eric Tinkler. Cape Town City. Head Coach  

Community programmes

We run a number of community programmes, primarily identified by the mentoring role taken on by our coaches & players.

Our short & long term outcomes

“HBUFC never give up on me. I played in the 1st team and since I was released from the Elite squad a few years ago, I’ve been part of the IPDP program. I’ve worked at a car wash, as a gardener, at a cafe. I’m now learning to read and write and I have a full time job as a Chef in a local company. Next I’m going to do my matric.

Defining our beneficiaries

“HBUFC gives their people the edge in life. They’re given chances and opportunity in a loving, pressure free environment. It allows those individuals to become extremely employable, responsible people. Sonny is a pleasure, but he’s still learning. Whenever there’s an issue he’s open to listen and learn and I know Mamzo at HBUFC is always there to help connect. We’re a great team together.
