MTC has handed over playing gear to the nine premier league teams sponsored by the mobile telecommunications giant. The new kits will be used in the second half of the 2012/2013 MTC Premier League season.
Speaking at the handing over ceremony on Thusrday, MTC’s Tim Ekandjo said that although there are still challenges facing football in the country, the Namibia Premier League has made considerable progress.“We are particularly happy with the administration and the financial aspect to football managemen,”Ekandjo said.
He, however, bemoaned the lack of televised local games, describing the situation as a great setback to football lovers that cannot attend the games. He called upon One Africa Televison and the national broadcaster, NBC, to come on board.
The Namibia Premier League chairman, Johnny Johnson Doeseb expressed gratitude towards the kind gesture from MTC.“Once again MTC has demonstrated their commitment towards the Namibia Premier League Clubs in particular and the Namibian Football in general.
Doeseb took the opportunity to once again emphasize on the importance of branding, “You will agree with me that branding is a key ingredient in how people perceive an individual or an organization. Equally, the way clubs dress their players on the fields sends a message to their fans and supporters about how serious they should be taken.”
Ekandjo urged spectators to to show up in numbers at the football matches in order to boost players moral. The playing attire costs N$350,000.
