About Equipe Les Dégommeuses

and

Thokozani Football Club (TFC) was formed by Zanele Muholi in her hometown, Umlazi, Durban in December 2008 out of necessity to increase women’s participation in sport, especially in soccer.

In February 2009, the team formally registered with South African Football Association (SAFA) under women’s division and is currently playing for the ABSA league.

Thokozani is named after one of our fallen sisters, Thokozani Qwabe, a black lesbian soccer queen who was brutally murdered in Ladysmith, KZN in 2007 for loving other women. Another related incident of a hate crime involving a lesbian soccer player is that of Eudy Simelane who was found murdered in 2008, in KwaThema, Springs.
