Round five of the Namibia Premier League (NPL) will see ninth placed Orlando Pirates taking on sixth placed Tigers at the Sam Nujoma Stadium on Friday evening at 20h00.
Both clubs are coming off defeats, after Pirates lost 2-0 to SKW on October 15 while Ramblers beat Tigers 1-0 two days earlier.
Tigers have won two matches out of the three they have played so far and have six points. Pirates on the other hand, have won only one of their four matches, drawn one and lost two matches and have four points.
The past weekend witnessed some spectacular volleyball as the best teams in the country battled it out in the first round of the NVF Cup, which will be played over three weekends.
The first game was between SKW and UNAM, which ended 3-0 in favour of SKW. UNAM won two games against SKW in the national league so it was needed for SKW to re-establish themselves as the dominant team. This was a highly anticipated game with good attendance and high-energy performances. The young guns of UNAM were good competition but had to succumb to the more consistent play of SKW.
The Namibian delegates at the 2010 Fifa World Cup symposium held last week in Cairo, Egypt hailed it as necessary and a great success.
According to the Technical Director of the Namibia Football Association Klaus Staerk, the symposium held on October 13-15 was “very interesting “as it brought together various football specialists who shared ideas with the rest of the fifty-three member association of CAF.
