It's the third facility of its kind in the country, with hubs in Khayelitsha and Diepsloot in Johannesburg.
Organisers from the Amandla Edu Football Foundation say the Oliver Kahn Safe Hub is aimed at tackling various socio-economic issues prevalent in the two communities.
The newly-constructed facility situated opposite the Nyanga Junction Train Station, includes a soccer pitch, an internet cafe and a learning hub.
It will provide permanent jobs for about 25 people.
Premier Zille has been joined by various officials including Community Safety MEC Dan Plato and Social Development MEC Albert Fritz.
Zille says she believes the facility will play a major role in skills development, academic growth and crime-prevention in the area.
