|Full name||Seven Stars Football Club|
|Dissolved||1999 (merged with Cape Town Spurs to form Ajax Cape Town)|
They were formed in 1995 by Rob Moore. Seven Stars was also known for its commitment to develop talent in under developed the Langa, Khayelitsha and Nyanga and used the under-developed Nyanga Stadium as a home venue. In the 1997–98 National First Division season, Seven Stars were unbeaten in the 38 games under Gavin Hunt, finished as runners-up to coastal champs Engen Santos. The team scored 96 goals and conceded 16 and went through an unbeaten run of 80 games. Stars merged with Cape Town Spurs and became Ajax Cape Town in 1999. However, none of the club's identity, ethos, or commitment to township football was retained after the Ajax merger. It is widely regarded that the ethos of Seven Stars and a winning mentality in Cape Town football were restored by the launch of Cape Town City FC in 2016.
