Welcome to Alex––the most notorious township in South Africa where soccer is lived, not played.
Race. Class. Poverty. Faith. Hope. Soccer. With soccer in township South Africa and the first ever FIFA World Cup in Africa as a lens, witness the ongoing transition from apartheid South Africa within a township largely misunderstood even by South Africans. Soccer City is a collection of profiles of five individuals born and raised in the oldest and most notorious of South Africa’s townships, Alexandra, locally known as ‘Alex.’
