One of the most interesting club names in World and African fooball is a combination of the founders name and the club he played during the NASL era in the USA.Besides that they were founded in 1970 during the period of Apartheid era in South Africa, Kaizer Chiefs are one of the biggest names in South African football and continue to be one of the most dominant sides in South Africa.Right after in 1970 they were founded the club experienced success.During the period of the 1970s,1980s and early-to-mid 1990s the with winning the National Professional Soccer League five times (1974,1977,1979, 1981,1984),the National Soccer League three times (1989,1991,1992),MTN 8 Cup eleven times (),Telkom Knockout Cup five times (1983,1984,1986,1988,1989) and the Nedbank Cup ten times (1971,1972,1976,1977,1979,1981,1982, 1984,1987,1992),in total during the worst of the Apartheid Era in South Africa,Kaizer Chiefs won 34 trophies in the first 25 years of existence.However after the end of Apartheid in 1995 and with the rise of clubs such as the Mamelodi Sundowns and their biggest rivals which they contest the Soweto Derby,the Orlando Pirates and club didn’t had much success but it always found the energy to rebound and win trophies.Also the club is famous for producing players like Shaun Barlett,Neil Tovey but most notably Lucas Radebe who played for Leeds United during their stint in the Premier League and a rock band from Leeds has the same name as our football club which I currently writing about since they wanted to pay a tribute to Radebe who played for Leeds.But the orange jersey which became one of the sports symbols against Apartheid is one of the best designed and legendary shirts of the 1970s.
