Before 2009 a football team called Izintethe FC was formed. A year later in April 2010 Muzi Hlatchwayo who managed this football team met Rolf Arnd Marewski from Dortmund. Their idea to establish a football club for young people in Commondale area was discussed and this led to the formation of Borussia Commondale with the support from Germany in terms of sport equipment. Then Borussia Commondale was introduced to local Commondale farmers who like and support the idea of building a sports project like founding a football club. So another two years later after playing tournaments within the Commondale area and further plannings and especially writing a club constitution Borussia Commondale is now a registered NPO (NPO number 123-874 NPO – Community Social Investment). After this registration BC management started to promote the sports in the area, to improve the infrastructure like sportsground, changing rooms etc. and to integrate the community. This all should assist on fighting against crime, drug and alcohol abuse since youth will be focusing on education and football. In this time Borussia Commondale grew up to three football teams at different ages.
During the various discussions regarding the constitution and how to involve many football teams, the idea was born to build up a football association for the Commondale area. To put this idea as easy as possible to practice Borussia Commondale’s constitution has been amended and it is now a constitution for a football association. The Name changed from “Borussia Commondale Football Club” to “Borussia Commondale Football Association” and the new board was elected from all Commondale teams. Now this project will grow much stronger and effective to the community of Commondale and we all can not wait to see the brightest future of the Commondale Football.
