Makhaza Spurs FC combats crime through soccer. Hollywood Foundation donates new kits.

Makhaza Spurs FC was formed in 2001 and it is comprised of five teams and over 75 players. Players practice four times a week at Makhaza Sports Grounds. The club was primarily formed to combat the high crime rate and substance abuse in the region, and it served as a means to keep children off the street and engaged in physical activity. One of the club’s proudest moment was when the team won the A-League for the first time in 2008.

The Hollywood Foundation is extremely passionate about sports development and using sport as a vehicle to empower and uplift needy and vulnerable individuals in the country. On 17 January 2022, the Team from Wynberg was proud to present the club with brand-new soccer kits for players to use when they compete in matches. A representative for Makhaza Spurs FC was overjoyed after receiving the kits, and said, “As a black-owned team with no sponsors, we were struggling a lot with finances and sports equipment. This will now boost the boy’s performance, in and out of the field.”
