Welcome, everyone, to a new blog brought to you by the District Six Museum. I’m Leanne, an Oxford University student interning here at the museum.

The blog is the online presence for two of District Six’s exhibitions, Fields of Play and Offside, taking place just down the road from the museum at the District Six Homecoming Centre, 15A Buitenkant Street, Cape Town.

The blog is a space for discussion and debate, comment and critique, about our exhibitions on sporting memory, and the District Six museum more widely. The two exhibitions, Fields of Play and Offside, are part of a long term effort by the museum to share residents’ stories about sporting life in District Six, Cape Town and South Africa more broadly. 

Both exhibitions look at football but with different perspectives.

For more information on both exhibitions and the museum itself, click on the ‘About’ tab above and go from there. We hope you enjoy, and join in the debates!

    Let’s hope SA soccer develops and succeeds in the months/years to come. You deserve it!!

    Any type or kind of racism should stop cause it creates a barrier on other people to fulfil their dreams or to live up to their full potential. We all different and unique in our own ways. STOP RACISM!!! Let’s love one another.

    Enjoyed the exhibit and hope to see many more SA players especially in the USA.

    Simply think about what Africa has given to football and then you won’t even question racism anymore… Africa is part of the game, the game is in Africa.

    The building itself is history. Nostalgic and the use of soccer history adds even more depth to it. Good use of Old Sacks Futeran (Old Sacks customer)
