Durban’s first Soccer Clubs

The first Soccer Clubs in Durban were founded in the early 1880’s and by 1886 four Indian soccer clubs were in existence. In 1903 a South African Indian Football Association was founded.

As the African workforce expanded, so also did football in the African locations, as well as among Africans at their leading (mostly mission) schools.

Among the first African clubs were Wild Zebras at the Ohlange Institute, Shooting Stars at Adams College and Natal Cannons at the Inanda Seminary.
