History

Durban Stars is a South African association football club based in Durban that participates in the National First Division, Coastal Stream.

Durban (Zulu: iTheku) is the second most populous city in South Africa, forming part of the eThekwini metropolitan municipality. It is the largest city in KwaZulu-Natal and is famous as the busiest port in Africa. It is also a major centre of tourism due to the city’s warm subtropical climate and beaches.

According to the 2001 Census, the city has a population of 3.2 million.[1] Durban’s land area of 2,292 square kilometres (884.9 sq mi) is comparatively larger than other South African cities, resulting in a comparatively lower population density of 1,460 inhabitants per square kilometre (3,781.4/sq mi).

Today, Durban is the busiest container port in Africa, the world’s 9th busiest port, and a popular tourist destination. The Golden Mile, developed as a welcoming tourist destination in the 1970s, as well as Durban at large, provide ample tourist attractions, particularly for people on holiday from Johannesburg. It lost its international holiday pre-eminence to Cape Town in the 1990s, but remains more popular among domestic tourists.
