Bellville City is managed by a focused and dedicated elected Committee, all of whom are striving, in the interests of the club, our footballing family and players, to maintain and enhance a strong family culture and improve the values and services we provide to the football players and the Bellville community at large.
The club further prides itself in maintaining a philosophy of growing the club from the “grass root” levels, i.e. training and developing our junior and youth players and recognising potential through enabling and giving them opportunity to obtain senior football exposure and experience. This is largely driven via a well-structured and dedicated team of coaches and development strategy.
Our community-based focus also enables us to be proud of the fact that we retain very low subscription fees in comparison to neighbouring clubs, in order to make the club and sport more accessible to all within the community.
