South African side Moroka Swallows, seen here in 2013, will not be playing in the country's Premier League next season after suffering relegation.

In the 1940's, Moroka Swallows were part of the first set of "Soweto Giants", the name given to the two big clubs in Soweto - Orlando pirates being the other. Moroka Swallows were the first football team to register as a public company in South Africa and the first to get sponsorship in the 1980's.
