Chiefs have won over 50 club awards and 12 league championships (four in the PSL era). They have the most titles in the PSL and are the most popular team in the nation, with an average home attendance of 14,873 in the 2018–19 season, which is the second highest in the league. The team’s home games are held at FNB Stadium.

The squad has a strong local rivalry with the Orlando Pirates, a neighboring Soweto side with whom Chiefs founder Kaizer Motaung played in his youth. Former national team captains Neil Tovey and Lucas Radebe, as well as Patrick Ntsoelengoe, Gary Bailey, John “Shoes” Moshoeu, Shaun Bartlett, Steve Komphela, Siyabonga Nomvete, and Doctor Khumalo, have all worn the black and gold jersey.

Following their unexpected withdrawal from the 2005 CAF Confederation Cup, Kaizer Chiefs were banned from participation in African club tournaments until 2009. CAF has fined Chiefs for refusing to compete in a tournament for the second time in four years.

In Sub-Saharan Africa, it is the most popular team. At the turn of the century, the Kaizer chiefs had a support base of nearly 16,000,000 people. It is believed that there are around 40,000,000 supporters in Southern Africa now.


The bulk of the fans are from South Africa and the surrounding nations. Kaizer Chiefs will commemorate their 50th anniversary in January 2020.

The British indie rock/britpop band Kaiser Chiefs was named after the club because Lucas Radebe, a former Kaizer Chiefs player, led Leeds United, the side that all of the band members supported.

Kaizer Chief History

The Kaizer Chiefs were created in January 1970, soon after Kaizer “Chincha Guluva” Motaung returned from playing forward for the Atlanta Chiefs of the North American Soccer League (NASL). The moniker Kaizer Chiefs was created by combining his own personal name with the Atlanta Chiefs.

Gilbert Sekgabi, Clarence Mlokoti, China Ngema, Ewert “The Lip” Nene, and Rabelani Jan Mofokeng, among others, played vital roles in the establishment and expansion of Kaizer Chiefs, but he lagged and departed due to work.

Fans refer the Kaizer Chiefs as “Amakhosi,” a Zulu term that means “kings” or “chiefs.” Their headquarters are at Naturena, six kilometers south of Johannesburg, near Kaizer Chiefs Village.

The 2001–02 season was both one of the Club’s most successful and devastating in its history. They won the Vodacom Challenge, the BP Top Eight, the Coca-Cola Cup, and the African Cup Winners’ Cup in only four months.


At the time, the club’s then-public relations officer, Putco Mafani, described the squad as being on “Operation vat alles,” an Afrikaans phrase that translates to “take everything” in English.


The Ellis Park Stadium incident on April 11, 2001, in which 43 spectators were crushed to death during the Soweto Derby between Chiefs and arch-rivals Orlando Pirates, contrasted the highs of cup successes.

Chiefs went on to face the 2001 CAF Champions League champions Al Ahly of Egypt in the 2002 CAF Super Cup after winning the African Cup Winners’ Cup.


The Confederation of African Football named Kaizer Chiefs “CAF Club of the Year” in April 2002, in recognition of their performances in 2001.

The Peace Cup in South Korea awarded the Chiefs the Fair Play Award in the 2003–04 season. The Chiefs won the PSL for the first time in their history at the conclusion of the season.

During the 2004–05 soccer season, the Chiefs surpassed the season-long leaders (Orlando Pirates) in the last game of the season to retain their PSL title.


Zambian striker Collins Mbesuma enjoyed a record-breaking season with Romanian coach Ted Dumitru, scoring 39 goals in all competitions.

A Confederation of African Football (CAF) ban briefly halted Kaizer Chiefs’ efforts into Africa. It made its mark, though, with the annual Vodacom Challenge, which pitted Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates against an invited European team.


Since its debut, the Chiefs have won the Vodacom Challenge Cup five times. In the 2006 Challenge, they defeated a youthful Manchester United team 4–3 on penalties to win the title. [10]

The club and coach Ernst Middendorp parted ways in March 2007. For the balance of the 2006–07 season, the club immediately hired former Orlando Pirates coach Kosta Papi. [needs citation]

Muhsin Ertural returned to the Chiefs for a second season in 2007–08, having previously coached The Glamour Boys from 1999 to 2003.

The squad won their first ever CAF Champions League final on June 26, 2021, after beating Wydad AC 1–0 on aggregate.
