ELSPARK United Football Club is a registered non profit organisation which was founded in 2012 by passionate entrepreneurs. We are currently based in Germiston (Elspark), and our players come from the previously disadvantaged communities that are in and around Germiston (i.e. Phomola, Villa Liza, Vooslorus, Katlehong, Thokoza, Sunward Park, Boksburg, ELSPARK, Dikathole etc.).

Our academy comprises of 6 divisions, namely: under 11,under 13, Under 15, under 17, under 19 and seniors. We strive for excellence in everything that we do by ensuring that our players are always happy.

Our sincere football objective is to develop young players and to enable them to compete at the highest level. And our social objective is to move the young stars away from the streets and to make sure that they are not exposed to drug abuse. We aim to enhance their football skills, instill social values and discipline, and to ensure that they complete their studies so that they can become better people in future.

We are committed to achieving this by providing quality programs to develop them and to help them with their educational needs. We strive to develop and improve the players holistically and not only in football and this is our key differentiator. The club is committed to becoming a leading force in youth soccer development in South Africa.

The foundation of our academy is based on providing personal attention to players individually in order to guarantee success of the players, both in soccer and in their studies.
