The government decided that more money was to be made from issuing brick maker's licences at five shillings per month.The result was that many landless Dutch-speaking burghers (citizens) of the ZAR settled on the property and started making bricks. Soon the area was known either Brickfields or Veldschoendorp.It owes its new existence to Vusi Mnisi who is the current coach and manager.He was one of the players in the original Zola team.In October 1887 the government of the ZAR bought the south-eastern portion of the farm Braamfontein.There were large quantities of clay, suitable for brickmaking, along the stream.
Never before has a site offered an incentive to its members to go out and get laid.The club is based at a gravel field situated in the informal (wood and iron) settlement called Mshenguville which is part of Mofolo.Many of the players come from the informal settlement, the others live in the surrounding formal (brick) houses. The travel and tour company, KDR Sports and Adventure Travel (Pty) Ltd runs tours to Soweto under the brand and has developed a close relationship with the residents of Mshenguville.There is a high level of unemployment and poverty in the area. In 2002 the company met Vusi and the captain of the team Bukhosibakhe (Roger) Hlomuka and agreed to sponsor the club.Initially the sponsorship was in respect of the open first team only, but this was extended to include the junior teams as well.The club now plays in blue and white strip with emblazoned on the shirts.
