History of Fortune Makaringe

Fortune Makaringe is one of the best soccer players in South Africa. He was born on the 13th of May, 1993, in Johannesburg, South Africa. At the age of 15, he developed an interest in football, prompting his father to nurture his talent. At this early age, he displayed massive talent when he played in Gauteng in some Easter tournaments.

His performances attracted the Moroka Swallows, who signed him for his first career involvement, although he opted to move to Maritzburg United later in his professional career. Fortune has grown into an accomplished player who now represents his national team.

Makaringe’s father is credited for raising a strong individual with solid leadership skills. Makaringe has a team spirit and winning attitude, qualities that have sustained him at the top of his game. His philosophy is to inspire other players that look up to him. One of his dreams is to win as many trophies as possible. He grew up idolizing great South African players like Teko Modise and Steve Lekoelea.

Fortune Makaringe In South Africa

Makaringe’s career in South Africa started when he was a teenager. He took part in informal tournaments in Gauteng and later joined Moroka Swallows. He later moved to Dune Birds, although he was not under any formal contract. This was perfect exposure for him because mainstream clubs in the South African league began to spot his talent.

In 2015, Maritzburg United signed Makaringe to launch his professional career. He spent around four years at the club, leaving in 2019 to join Orlando Pirates, where he plays to date.

Fortune Makaringe is a one-time winner of the MTN 8 cup. This competition features the top 8 clubs in the previous DSTV premiership season. It is one of the coveted trophies in South Africa, given the competition’s history and the handsome reward for the winner.

Network giants MTN have been the sponsors of the tournament since 2008. When Orlando Pirates won the competition in 2021, Fortune Makaringe was part of the team. The grand prize for the winning team is R8 million, so he must have been proud to contribute towards this achievement.
