NPL gets interim committee

The Namibia Premier league (NPL) over the weekend held an Extra ordinary General Meeting and resolved to appoint the five interim management committee members to run the affairs of the league for the next six months.

The five are chairperson of the committee Franco Cosmos (Blue Waters FC), Evaristus Evaristus (UNAM FC), Gabriel Tjombe (Eleven Arrows FC), Victor Hamunyela (Civics FC) and Ranga Haikali (Black Africa FC).

The above Committee will be chaired by Mr. Franco Cosmos. The Committee is mandated to: Convene a Board of Governors Meeting within 30 calendar days, where a road map will be presented charting the way forward with regard to; Finding a Sponsor/s for the League, and the commencement of the League.

The committee also has to engage with the Namibia Football Association (NFA) on various matters inter alia the amended Constitution of the NPL, registration of players and all other football matters that will have a bearing impact on a functioning Premier League for the country.

The Committee was also mandated to call for an Elective Congress within a six (6) month period.
In media statement on Saturday, the league called on stakeholders, the corporate world and media to help us in achieving the above goals for the sake of football in the country. In the same breath, the NPL Family also would like to express its appreciation and gratitude to the former Leadership of the NPL for all the efforts and achievements they have made for football.

This followed the resignation of the previous management committee last week together with its chairperson Johnny Doeseb. The Namibia Premier league has been inactive since the completion of the league in May last year and with the new football calendar having started in February 2017, the NPL is expected to find a sponsor and kickoff.
