History & Honours


The University of Pretoria Football Club's Women's Programme was started in 1994 by coach Sello Mokoena. The team was called Tuks Ladies and they competed in the only league in the country for women, called the Sanlam Halala Cup, which was played at regiona level. 

The team then bought a status in the then Provincial Vodacom League, from a team called Mighty Gunners in 2004. The team played for one season in the league as Mighty Gunners and the following season changed the name to Tuks Football Club. In 2004 the University of Pretoria hosted the USSA National championships, and it was the first time that the University of Pretoria women's team participated in the USSA Football National Club Championships, where they finished in 8th position.

In 2009 a decision was made to establish a junior team which would compete in the SAFA Regional League and also feed players to the senior team which competed in the provincial league. Varsity students from both the junior and senior teams made up the varsity team, which competed against other universities in the USSA Gauteng Football League as well as the USSA Football National Club Championships. 

In 2012 the programme established a community-based satellite development programme in the township of Mamelodi, for girls between the ages of nine and seventeen. The satellite was based at the University of Pretoria Mamelodi Campus and is a feeder team for the junior team, the senior team as well as the varsity team.
