The Tafel Lager Brave Warriors will play Botswana at the National Rugby Stadium on Sunday afternoon in a friendly international encounter that will form part of Namibia’s 20th Independence Celebrations.
Since the Independence Stadium is still unavailable to stage soccer matches due to renovations to the pitch, the match will be played at the Hage Geingob National Rugby Stadium. This will allow people attending Independence Day festivities at the Independence Stadium to walk over to the adjacent Hage Geingob Stadium to attend the international soccer encounter.
The establishment of a Namibian Players Union is well on track and in the offing, following a meeting between FIFPRO (World Players Union) members and the Namibia Premier League on Tuesday.
A delegation comprising of Silvester Goraseb, president of the Namibia Football Players Union and Thulaganyo Gaoshubelwe, board member of FIFPRO Division Africa paid a courtesy call on Mathew Haikali, the CEO of the NPL, during which they briefed him on the progress of the registration of the Namibian chapter of the Players Union, which has been duly registered in Namibia.
Brave Warriors coach Tom Saintfiet has reacted to a report by Namibia Sport that compared the Brave Warriors’ home based team to that of Seychelles, following Namibia’s 1-0 defeat in Seychelles on Saturday.
The original report stated that Namibia was ranked 111 in the world and 28 in Africa while Seychelles was ranked 174 in the world and 46 in Africa.
