African Brothers Football Academy is the brainchild of Craig Hepburn and Siphiwe Cele, a prominent community member of Imizamo Yethu. In 1996 these two friends from radically different backgrounds formed a friendship. They founded the African Brothers football team, registered with the Hout Bay Football Association, with the objective of harnessing South Africa's love of soccer to bridge cultural divides and effect change in Cape Town's invisible suburb. We are grateful for the amazing amount of support we have received. In 2009 African Brothers Football Academy launched the Flagship Academy at the sports facilities of Gardens Commercial High School. A collaboration was formed with Gardens Commercial High School. African Brothers manages the facilities and offers a safe haven for footballers of all ages, gender and backgrounds. We have come a long way and have our community, supporters and players to thank for helping us grow.
