The round of 32 in the NFA Debmarine Namibia Cup has pitted 2017 champions Young African against Black Africa FC.

The two league teams are going to face off in search of a place in the last sixteen of the competition.

Both clubs have begun the season well and the game is likely to produce fireworks.

Rundu Chiefs and Civics have also been drawn against each other in the round of 32.

Citizens FC are one of the premier league clubs which will play another league team Young Chiefs FC.

Also in the mix of things will be a repeat of last season's Debmarine Namibia Cup draw which sees Tura Magic battle Mighty Gunners for a place in the last 16.

Diamond company Debmarine came to the rescue of Namibian football when it committed N$14.1 million to the tournament in 2016 for over a period of three years.

Minister of sport Erastus Uutoni lauded Debmarine Namibia for supporting sport.

“I would like to thank Debmarine Namibia for supporting sport because football is one of the biggest codes in the country.

“Other corporate companies must also follow in the footsteps of Debmarine Namibia,” Uutoni said.

Debmarine Namibia CEO Otto Shikongo said that he was delighted by the fact that the tournament was a success last year.

Shikongo assured the public that the company will remain committed to ensuring that the dreams of many footballers are realised.

Young African were crowned champions of the competition after beating Mighty Gunners 3-2 in the final which took place in Gobabis last year.

Young African bagged N$500 000 for winning the tournament.

Individual efforts were also recognised. Itamunua Keimuine of Tura Magic was awarded N$20 000 for being the top goal scorer of the tournament.

Young African's Himeezembi Hengombe was voted player of the tournament and was rewarded with N$20 000.

Young African coach Maleagi Ngarizemo was the coach of the tournament and was handsomely rewarded with N$15 000 and goalkeeper Mata Mbemutjiua of Young African won the Golden Gloves Award and was given N$15 000.

The 2018 Debmarine Namibia Cup Competition proper gets under way with the Last 32 clubs in action on the weekend of 24 March.
