NAMDIA sponsors Brave Warriors
Namib Desert Diamonds (NAMDIA) has pumped N$800 000 worth of sponsorship into Brave Warriors to help the national colors get closer to the 2019 CAF African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifications.
The Brave Warriors will receive winning and draw bonuses in their quest to qualify for the third continental championships final appearance.
Players will each get N$ 5000 for a draw and N$ 10 000 for a win, starting with the two Mozambique victories.
NAMDIA chief executive officer, Kennedy Hamutenya said that their coming on board was inspired by the big prize of qualification for the AFCON finals.
“With this sponsorship, we are confident it will serve as an incentive for the players to perform at their peak, to once again push this nation through the greatest sports contest on the continent. We are very aware that our players endure tough times whilst at the same time carry the national flag. We need to make our players carry our flag with pride and not allow them to run on empty stomachs,” Hamutenya said.
He added that there is nothing more motivating than the ecstasy of winning and the thrill of victory and that NAMDIA is proud to be part of the Brave Warriors in good and bad times.
On the road to Cameroon 2019 AFCON finals in Group K, the Brave Warriors will host Guinea Bissau on 17th November with a win in that encounter and a draw in the Mozambique vs Zambia game enough to book a place for the 2019 AFCON finals.
Bissau and Namibia are on seven points each while Mozambique and Zambia are on four each with two match days left.
