FNB Namibia launched the 8th Classic Clashes at the Wanderers in Windhoek on Tuesday. The FNB Classic Clashes was initiated by the bank in 2008 and have gone from strength to strength over the past 8 years with many senior secondary school learners striving for a place to participate in netball, rugby and soccer.
At the 2015 launch Dixon Norval, Head of Strategic Marketing and Communications at the bank read the FNB speech on behalf of the Group CEO Sarel Van Zyl and said, “FNB Namibia, in association with Namib Mills, is very proud to bring you this sport programme that has been running for eight years consecutively. The theme for this year’s Classic Clashes is again “Game On! Be a Hero. Be there!” and strives to reveal the competitive spirit that we want to foster between schools.”

“It also reminds us that it is not only the men and women on the sports field who are important but the total school fraternity, including fellow learners and even the broader school community. As a matter of fact, it is the host school’s responsibility to encourage spectators to be there in their numbers,” he added.
Norval said that FNB and Namib Mills continued to support the school community at large and best performing players would once again receive N$250 deposited in their FNB bank account and feature on TV as the Namib Mills Heroes. Norval said the bank will also announce a number of new and exciting additions to the 2015 FNB Classic Clashes at a slightly later stage.
