Orlando Pirates is one of South Africa’s oldest football clubs having been established in 1937 in Orlando East, Soweto. The club’s performances over the years have served as an inspiration for young footballers to strive to play the Beautiful Game at the highest level in the black and white colours of the ‘Buccaneers’.
The founders of Orlando Pirates included the offspring of migrant workers who moved from rural areas to work in the gold mines of Gauteng. Boys in Orlando came together at every available opportunity in open spaces and in informal groupings to play football. That original club was called the Orlando Boys Club.
In 1940, Bethuel Mokgosinyane, the first president, bought the first team kit with his own funds. Orlando Boys participated in Johannesburg Bantu Association’s Saturday League, where they won the Division Two title and gained promotion to Division One in 1944. Andrew Bassie, a key member of the team, suggested the new name ‘Orlando Pirates’. The team composed the camp’s war cry ‘Ezimnyama Ngenkani’.Orlando Pirates Fixtures 2023/2024 – DSTV Premiership, Orlando Pirates scores 2023/2024, Orlando Pirates upcoming fixtures
