This paid off for the club this week, Wednesday when it received a performance bonus from the First National Bank. Black Africa received N$100 000.
Cassius Moetie, outgoing chairman of Black Africa, said that the club is proud of its achievements and assured the public that his team will raise the MTC/NPL Premier Cup again in the next season.
He said that Black Africa did not win by luck or because the team was favoured by the officials.
“We are officially the undisputed two-time champions of Namibian football and we were  close to breaking a new record to win the MTC/NPL premier League unbeaten. I take the 1-0 loss against Ramblers personal and I don’t know how to deal with this, however, in the interest of sportsmanship I have no choice but to make peace with Ramblers’ victory,” Moetie said.
Also speaking at the ceremony, Ester Kali, head of Retail Banking at FNB, said that Black Africa  earned the performance bonus.
“There is a lot at stake to be crowned champions, it calls for fitness and discipline, it demands sportsmanship along with the fair play philosophy of FIFA as well as respecting the laws of the game.”
She said that FNB will continue to sponsor football and called for greater involvement from all the clubs and sponsors to increase spectators and participation amongst clubs at all league matches.
