About Us

Manchester United Supporters’ Club Cape Town Branch has been in existence since 2007 as a sub-branch of the official Manchester United Supporters’ Club South Africa (SA Reds) established in 1990. The Cape Town branch was unofficially active in the 1990’s as well under the leadership of Frank Lord, however after Frank’s passing on, the Cape Town Supporters’ Club became inactive.

The Cape Town Branch was revived in 2007, when two of our longstanding members Devon September and John Odendaal approached Ethel Sleith (SA Reds secretary) for advice. As a result, we were accepted as a sub-branch of the Official Manchester United Supporters’ Club South Africa, based in Johannesburg. We have since grown and matured into a respected Supporters’ club in the Cape Town region where our loyal members keep the “Red Flag Flying High”. We now have an established Clubhouse, situated in the Strandfontein suburb of Cape Town, where members regularly gather for Man United games, meetings and other Supporters’ Club events. We have tons of reading materials and videos displaying the proud history and traditions of our beloved Manchester United which is available to all members on request.

We have also adopted and presented Quinton Fortune (former-Man United player from Cape Town) with an honorary lifetime membership on his last visit to our Clubhouse in May this year, and we get regular visits from UK Man United fans wanting to watch matches with fellow supporters.

All our members are regularly educated on the rules and regulations of the club using the Supporters’ Club Charter and the SA Reds Constitution as a foundation. We are extremely proud of our achievements and the hard work of everyone associated with our Supporters’ Club. Our club have also built solid relationships with other football lovers, the media, our local communities and many charity organisations throughout the Mother City.
