Top Score on Wednesday announced that it had committed itself to co-sponsoring the Global United FC exhibition soccer match that will take place in Otavi, on Sunday, 3 April, under its brand name Namib Mills (Pty) Ltd.
Global United FC is bringing close to 15 top international retired soccer stars, for the second time to Namibia, to play in one exhibition match against Namibia’s legendary players (Brave Warriors Team of 1998). The Namibian players include Congo Hindjou, Mohameb Ouseb, Lolo Goreseb, Bimbo Tjihero, and others. The main purpose of this match is to raise money for environmental issues such as global warming and climate change.
Further to this, Namib Mills will also contribute to the Ohorongo Otavi Community Trust (OOCT). The OOCT invited Namib Mills to partner with them in financially supporting the establishment of a soccer field and sports facility in Otavi. Namib Mills thus agreed to donate N$25 000 to the Trust, as Namib Mills’ second largest operation is in Otavi.
On Friday, 1 April, a fun packed event will be held in Windhoek at the Sam Nujoma Stadium (B Field), where children will interact with local and international football legends, from 15h00 – 17h00. On Sunday, 3 April, a match will be played in Otavi, between the legendary international players and the Namibian players, as well as a dribbling event, at the Otavi soccer field. On Monday, 4 April, another dribbling event will take place in Otavi at the soccer field.
Everyone is invited to come and meet the legendary soccer players and earn him or herself the opportunity to dribble a ball against a football legend and in addition stand a chance to win great promotional prizes. However the victory will be determined by how long the consumer is able to dribble the ball and stay in the game.
All soccer fanatics and the local community are urged to support this fun and revolutionary event that will take place. If you cannot do it for soccer, do it for the environment or better yet give your support to both.
Global United FC is a football project that consists of more than 250 of the world’s most famous retired football players. Its mission is to fight global warming by playing exhibition football matches at various worldwide locations affected by climate change with Namibia being one of the locations.
Ohorongo Otavi Community Trust was initiated by Ohorongo Cement, where through engagements with the Otavi community the Trust aims to improve the Otavi and surrounding community’s living conditions.
