The Namibian Fistball season will conclude on Saturday when the SFC Sport Club in Swakopmund hosts the Bank Windhoek National Fistball Cup Competition.
The tournament will be played in two categories. Trophies will be up for grabs in the National A league and National B league.
The Second division (National B league) is expected to have a record number of participants with teams from Swakopmund, Walvis Bay and Windhoek participating.
Favourites are Cohen FC 2 a team that recently won the Bank Windhoek National B league. Their main rivals will be the SKW team that challenged them throughout the season. With an experienced SFC side and an ever-improving DTS team in the mix, this division of the tournament promises great fistball action.
The Bank Windhoek Cup for the first division teams will in all likelihood be an SKW affair. The club has two teams entered in the category. The teams also met in the National league final three weeks ago were SKW 2 was victorious.
The team led by spiker, Michael Baas, is considered to be the favourite in this division.
Last year’s winner, home team SFC, has an outside chance. They won the Cup with the help of German Bundesliga spiker, Nick Trinemeier, who coached the club at the time. Without him in attack, SFC will lack a competitive edge.
The games start at 08h30 at the SFC Sport Club, with finals scheduled for around 16h30.
The day’s play will be followed by a prize giving ceremony which will not only honour the winners, but  the Fistball Association of Namibia will announce the DANRIC AUTO Senior and Junior Fistball Player of the Year.
