African Stars will take on Mamelodi Sundowns in the inaugural Dr.

Hage Geingob Cup on Africa Day, May, 25 at the Independence

Stadium in Windhoek.

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

votes.

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.
