The National Women Under 20 side will have to negotiate their way past Ghana in the 2012 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup first hurdle.
This follows the draw for the African qualifiers this week for the 7th edition of the tournament from 18 August to 9 September 2012 which will see 16 teams, comprising representatives from all six confederations represented.
Namibia’s first assignment will be away to Accra on 18 February 2012 with the return leg in Windhoek scheduled for 3 March 2012.
Paulus Ambunda will defend his WBO African bantamweight title in a boxing bonanza at the Windhoek Country Club on November 5.
Namibian boxing promoter Nestor Tobias said this on Wednesday at a press conference at the Namibia Sport Commission, where he also donated boxing equipment to the Namibia Sport Commission.
Tobias donated 100 punch bags to the NSC which will be distributed throughout Namibia’s 13 regions to help develop boxing at grassroots level.
Scotland extended their dominance over Namibia and secured a 4-1 Twenty20 series win with a crushing 126-run victory in the fifth match at Windhoek High School.
Richie Berrington's 63 underpinned Scotland's innings, helping them to reach 181 for 7, after which Namibia's chase imploded in spectacular fashion and they were all out for 55 in the 11th over.
Berrington's half-century had been Scotland's only innings of any length, but there were contributions from most of the top order as they opted to bat first in their final match of the tour.
Wanderers 2 and Windhoek High School Old Boys Cricket Club (WHS) 1 are both currently leading the MTC Premier Cricket League after they won their opening matches of the season.
