The fans had a chance to vote either of the 12 Namibian Premier
League teams and Stars got the nod after being voted by the fans
with 7061 votes ahead of Black Africa (3459) and Tigers with 3166
As a result of coming second and third in the polls, Black Africa will
square off against Tigers at 14h00 just before the main match which
pits the South African league champions against the current Bidvest
Namibia champion. The extravaganza will start at 10h00 as the gates
open to the public with the first match between the Prime Minister’s
Invitational vs Diplomats kicking off at 11h00.
Announcing the results at the media briefing held on Wednesday
morning at Football House, Barry Rukoro, NFA Secretary General
also revealed what the local participating teams will get for their
involvement in honour of Namibia’s first and current Premier.
“African Stars will receive N$150 000 for playing against Sundowns
and for BA and Tigers each will receive N$100 000, which is
something worth mentioning indeed. It is all in honour of the son of
the soil and his contribution to Namibia and particularly to football
and we are all looking forward to it,” Rukoro said.
