Dates 11 win Tebe Lombard Christmas Cup

12 December 2019 | Sports

Dates 11 from Naute Dam were on Sunday crowned the winners of the first-ever Tebe Lombard Christmas Cup held in Aroab.

They beat Transky 4-2 on penalties after a goalless draw in the final match.

The tournament took place at the Aroab football stadium on Saturday and Sunday and saw 11 teams from second and third divisions taking part.

Participating teams were from the //Karas and Hardap regions, as well as the Northern Cape province in South Africa.

One of the organisers of the tournament Gert Witbooi told Nampa the tournament was aimed at preparing players, especially from the third division, for the league that will start in March next year.

“This prepared the eight teams from Aroab that will be playing in the third division league next year. The tourney also aims to create international relations with our counterparts in South Africa, as teams and referees from there also took part in the tournament,” he added.

Witbooi said the tourney also promotes football at grassroots level and unearths talented players.

“Such tournaments can show the relevant stakeholders that they can also invest in football at rural or remote areas,” he said.

The event was initiated by Brave Warriors player Tiberius Lombard.

Dates 11 walked away with N$15 000 in cash, a floating trophy and 25 gold medals.

Transky of Keetmanshoop walked away with N$9 000 and 25 silver medals for coming in second.

Zamalek and Aroab Celtics, both from Aroab, received N$2 500 each as the losing semi-finalists.
