Galz & Goals league kick off delayed due to renovations of soccer fields

The Galz & Goals league kick-off has been delayed due to ongoing renovations at the Namibia Football Association (NFA) technical field and the Katutura youth complex.

The league was expected to kick-off this month but there is no other field at which the games can be played for now, NFA Galz & Goals' Astrid Vries told The Villager. 

“Currently I cannot comment on the matter but what I can say for now is we tried to organise for the league to kick off but both stadia are still under pressure. An official statement will be made by the NFA. It is now too early to say what the way forward is because the issue is being handled by the association and I am sure that the outcome will be shared with everybody soon,” she said.

She added that there is a possibility that games will be played in a manner in which all teams will be able to catch up on the games they were supposed to play by also playing during the weekends.

The league was premeditated to be played by Wednesday and the under 13 and under 20 leagues every Friday.

Efforts to get a comment from Jacqui Shipanga, NFA’s General Manager of Women’s Football ended in vain as her phone was unreachable.

Meanwhile the NFA women department hosted an under 17 girls' talent identification tournament in Windhoek from the 2nd to the 4th of June, in collaboration with the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit.
