A Fact

Kaizer Chiefs are a South African football club, founded 7 January 1970 in Soweto, Johannesburg. The team is nicknamed Amakhosi which means "lords" or "chiefs" in Zulu. They normally play their home games at either FNB Stadium, ABSA Stadium or Ellis Park Stadium. The club is unarguably the biggest football club in the country in terms of success. It is also the most supported club in South Africa and the neighbouring countries of Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia etc. It has been estimated that the club has over 16 million supporters.

They have a local rivalry with Orlando Pirates, a fellow Soweto team which Chiefs founder Kaizer Motaung played for in his early playing career.

The Chiefs have been banned by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) from competing in African club competitions until 2009 after their abrupt withdrawal from the 2005 CAF Confederation Cup. This is the second time in four years that Chiefs have been penalized by CAF for refusal to participate in a scheduled CAF competition.

Kaiser Chiefs, a British indie/britpop band, was named after the club because Lucas Radebe, a former player of Kaizer Chiefs, captainedLeeds United, the team they all supported.

  2. Hi Stephen,

    The dates you give me do not seem correct but for this Saturday a few junior west region games are scheduled, including Irvine Meadow XI's West of Scotland Cup Final. I think there may be more outstanding fixtures so keep an eye on the fixture list:

    I am not aware of any SPL/SFL friendlies in the next couple of weeks, I think they do not start till July.
