Brave Warriors camp in Ghana: while NPL awards resuscitated
The Namibian Football Association (NFA) send a contingent of 17 locally based players to Accra, Ghana to attend a training camp from 10 May to 23 May, in preparation of two crucial up coming fixtures.
Secretary General of NFA, Barry Rukoro said, since the domestic league had come to conclusion the Brave Warriors Coach, Ricardo Mannetti, had selected local based players to travel to Ghana and train in preparation for the AFCON 2017 qualifier match against Niger, slated for June 4 in Windhoek as well as to gear up for COSAFA Castle Cup Competition to be held in Windhoek from 18 June to 25.
Rukuro said the team departed for Ghana Tuesday morning and will return on May 23 to Namibia where they will be joined by the foreign based players, to beef up the squad.
Meanwhile, in recent developments the MTC Namibia Premier League Annual Awards which had been shelved, were merely resuscitated in a rather unique format to produce the same outcomes and will now take place in a different format and time in the form of an Executive Media Conference at the Nice Restaurant on Friday 13.
According to the NPL, the MTC/Premiership Awards are primarily staged to honour top performing NPL Clubs, players and football administrators and the NPL, in consultation with its headline sponsor, MTC, holds the prerogative to innovatively re-arrange or amend any NPL event at any given time as it deems fit. Furthermore the NPL said it remains committed, in terms of its obligations, to honour best performing clubs and players for the 2015/2016 Football Season; and the Management Committee [MC) of the League will honour this commitment, without fail, at the Executive Media Conference.
