Chippa United FC was formed in January 2010. Initially, they were based in Nyanga, Cape Town. They rapidly shot up to the Premiership, but were relegated on the first attempt in 2012-13.
Chippa moved straight back up in 2013-14, and in 2015-16, they enjoyed a particularly impressive season. That campaign saw Chippa finish sixth in the Premiership, but they have struggled to recapture that magic since.
