Kaizer Chiefs history

The club was founded in January 1970 after the great Kaizer "Chincha Guluva" Motaung came back to South Africa from the United States. He used to play for the Atlanta Chiefs as a striker, so he used his first name and the second of the Atlanta Chiefs to form the Amakhosi. Other people who played crucial roles in its development include China Ngema, Rabelani Jan Mofokeng, the late Gilbert Sekgabi, Ewert "The Lip" Nene, and Clarence Mlokoti.

Headquartered in Naturena in the Kaizer Chiefs Village, one of the club’s most successful season was in 2001/2002 when they won four trophies in as many months. However, it was one of the saddest because of the Ellis Park Stadium disaster, which happened on 11 April 2001. During the Soweto derby with the Pirates, 43 fans died after a crash.
