Supersport F.C. is an association football club wholly owned by SuperSport, the South African group of television channels.

The club was originally known as Pretoria City. City was purchased by M-Net in 1994. M-Net got approval from the National Soccer League and the club was renamed.

The club comprises a professional football team affiliated to the Premier Soccer League as well as various youth academy teams in the SuperSport United Youth Academy playing within their respective SAFA structures.

Home matches are usually played at Lucas Moripe Stadium in Atteridgeville, Pretoria, however in recent times the club has elected to take many matches to the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane.

The club's youth academy is undoubtedly one of the best in the country. Some of the graduates are players like Daine Klate, Kermit Erasmus, Ronwen Williams and Kamohelo Mokotjo. They have previously been linked with English Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur and Dutch side Feyenoord.
