Club History:
   
The Beautiful Birds are one of the oldest and most prestigious soccer clubs in South Africa. The team has adapted with the times and the evolving social situation in the country to become an icon of positive change to their supporters.

The club was founded in the 1940's by a trio of soccer lovers, Ishmael Lesolang, Strike Makgatha and Johnny Kubheka.

They originally named the side Congregated Rovers after the firm in which most of the players and officials worked, later changing it to Moroka Rovers.

But then, on the 10th of October 1947, the trio decided to change the name again to Moroka Swallows, basing themselves in the township formally known as Masakeng.

The name has lasted for the best part of 55 years, a period which has seen consistent success both on the field and off it.

The 1950's and 60's were a successful time for the club, culminating in their greatest ever achievement, winning the South African League title in 1965.

Off the field, the club was becoming a business and in 1971 they became the first ever soccer team to register as a public company.

That same year they were also the first to receive an official sponsorship when Teljoy began their association with the club.

The decade between 1982 and 1992 was a successful one for the team, culminating in four pieces of silverware.
