Stephanian Ottery AFC is one of the largest amateur football clubs in the Western Cape and the largest football club in the local Cape District LFA. The club accounts for 10% of the registered 5551 members at CDFA. We have a large contingent of juniors from previously disadvantaged backgrounds. We have a proud history that dates back to the humble beginnings of 1924. The club aims to achieve the long term vision of developing a safer sporting environment where the youth can learn skills and competencies to excel in the soccer arena.

The bulk of our membership contains approximately 343 junior and 181 senior players who reside in the Ottery and surrounding disadvantage and impoverished working class areas of Philippi, Hanover Park, Parkwood, Grassy Park and Lotus River. The club has 26 registered teams of which 20 are junior teams ranging from under-6 to under-19.

Additional junior membership is a challenge to the club as present facilities such as training, dressing room and storage at Stephanian is inadequate. There is also a need for basic equipment such as playing kit, jerseys, match balls, bibs and cones. Some juniors are extremely poor and require assistance to obtain football apparel like soccer boots and socks. The club also assist with nutrition feeding programs to support the less privilege boys on a Saturday with a meal and attempts to provide basic apparel equipment like boots to the dis-advantage members.

The logistics of maintaining and running such a club and facility is costly and although are revenue is predominantly from our members fees and ad-hoc sponsorship and donations, there is a huge delta that needs to be overcome.

Being the biggest amateur club in Cape District LFA, the opportunity exist for companies to market and advertise its services using Stephanian Ottery as a brand ambassador. The club fields at Stephanian are fixtured weekly for Cape District LFA games. On a Saturday, there are approximately 230 cars from members and visitors that pass through our premises. This constitutes on average to about 500-600 members and supporters.

Stephanian has an ambitious plan of short, medium and long term goals to develop and grow the club into a top quartile establishment. We would appreciate and welcome any assistance in the form of sponsorship/donations towards the cost of our immediate short term goals.
