FNB Namibia launched the Classic Classic Clashes for this year, with  participating schools that have grown from the initial 14 to 42, with more schools still wishing to take part this year.  
The launch took place at St. Paul’s College in Windhoek yesterday 22 May and traditionally features various schools competing in different sporting disciplines.
At the official launch Ian Leyenaar, CEO of FNB Namibia said, the FNB Classic Clashes has become a household name for many in both Namibia and South Africa.
“While it is primarily a community based developmental project for school-going youth, it also serves to identify and develop the most talented amongst them, as a way to become great sportsmen and women that may one day even represent Namibia in international football, rugby and netball codes,” said Leyenaar.
Namib Mills are the new co-sponsors of the event.
“We acknowledge Namib Mills and we thank them for becoming strategic partners on this exciting journey.  In future, the initiative will be known as the FNB Classic Clashes, presented by Namib Mills,” said Leyenaar.
Leyenaar also said schools who will be participating in the classic event will be rewarded for exhibiting their school’s spirit through a version of the the FNB Classic Clashes song.
“As a new initiative for the Classic Clashes, the schools are expected to showcase their entertainment skills during half time performing to the clashes song,” said Leyenaar.
Meanwhile, Leyenaar said the best performing school stands a chance to win one of the following great prices, Photo copy machine for the school, and full sport gear for the school team such as tog bag, shorts, shirts, socks, track suit or a computer for the school.
