CAF Secretary General’s visit to assess the current impasse in local football

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) Secretary General, Veron Mosengo-Omba will be in the country for a two-day visit, Namibia Football Association (NFA) spokesperson, Dan Kamati confirmed.

Kamati said the visit from 8 to 10 November will be for the Secretary General to assess the current impasse in local football.

“He’s coming here on a working visit on matters related to the current situation within the Namibia Football Association and he will be joined on this trip by the Football Association President of Angola and [they] requested to meet other stakeholders,” NFA Secretary General Franco Cosmos confirmed.

Domestic soccer over the past years has been marred by continuous infighting among executive committee members of the NFA, as well as between the NFA and the Namibia Premier League officials, resulting in the persitent deterioration of the quality of soccer taught to young players.
