Formed in 2000, the NRSDF is responsible for the development of sports in rural areas and in different constituencies countrywide.
Speaking to Nampa on Tuesday, NRSDF public relations officer Ngatuuane Hange said the tournament is aimed at showcasing future stars to football and netball clubs and national teams.
“This is even the feeder to the Namibia Premier League (NPL) as many current players in the Namibian elite league come from rural areas,” Hange said.
He said scouts from different premier league clubs are always present at these tournaments, searching for players. The N$35 000 will be disbursed between the netball and football categories, with the netball category being allocated N$12 000 and football N$23 000.
The netball winner will take home N$6 000, a trophy and 20 gold medals while the runners-up will receive
N$3 000 and 20 silver medals.
Each semi-final loser will take home N$3 000. In the football category, the winning team will pocket N$11 000, a trophy and 20 gold medals. The runners-up will get N$6 000 with 20 silver medals.
During last year's tournament, Otjombinde defeated Epukiro in the football category, while the team from Epukiro overcame their Otjinene counterparts in netball.
