CAPS United F.C. is a Zimbabwean football club based in Harare. Formed in 1973, the team rose to prominence in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Its nickname is "Makepekepe".

History[edit]

Popularly known as the Cup Kings or Makepekepe for their dominance in most cup tournaments. It is Harare's second most popular team after their rivals Dynamos F.C. Caps United is a team that has produced some of the country's best players and legends including Shaky Tauro, Brenna Msiska, only to name a few.

On 30 August 2010; Lloyd Chitembwe's 20-month stint as CAPS United's head coach ended when he left the Green Machine after his contract was terminated by mutual consent, following a poor run of results that has torched a rebellion among the club's fans.[1]

On 12 January 2012 Sean Connor[2] was appointed manager, the Northern Irishman had previously managed Sligo Rovers, Bohemians and Galway United in the League of Ireland, leading Galway United on the worst season in their history with a record run of defeats[3] and relegation to the League of Ireland First Division (though the club withdrew from the league before they could take their place).
