|League||Namibia Premier League|
The FC Civics Windhoek is a Namibian football club based in Windhoek. The CIVICS play in the highest division of Namibian football, the Namibia Premier League. The club has its home in Khomasdal, in the north of the Namibian capital Windhoek.
From 2000 the club is also known as Buschschule Civics.
FC Civics were founded by a group of young students in 1983, who initially named the team after a local street – Bethlehem Boys. The club later became the Mighty Civilians before being recast again as Civics. Even today, the bulk of the squad comes either from Khomasdal or the neighbouring township of Katutura.
Over the past few years, residents of this underprivileged area have charted the rise of Civics from a useful street team to Namibia's top club. One of the key figures in that success story is Helmut Scharnowski, who hails from the northern German city of Flensburg.
