Dusty settlement comes alive
The absence of football in the country due to the coronavirus pandemic affected the lives of many football lovers, who finally got the chance to watch the beautiful game again at Groot Aub.

The Groot Aub Football Challenge series, powered by Dad Man, took place at the weekend in the dusty settlement.
Players got a chance to showcase their talents with even those who ply their trade in the MTC Namibia Premier League battling it out for top spots.
The tournament started in the south, with Ernst Jahs Combined School winning the Karasburg series and Black Arrows winning the Keetmanshoop edition. After the Groot Aub edition, Windhoek players will get a chance to conclude the series of tournaments.
Education through sport
Sponsoring N$10 000 towards the tournament, William Cloete, the founder of the Dad Man brand, said he was happy to be part of the competition.
“I chose to invest in football because Dad Man stands for responsible fathers and husbands.
“Football is a game that is played by many men around the world and there is no better opportunity to put my message across and educate men on how to be responsible fathers and husbands.
“I hope that after this tournament, more men will actually learn that gender-based violence is not the future but creating a happy environment for our wives and kids is,” he said.
The tournament was expected to be concluded late yesterday. Grab a copy of tomorrow's Namibian Sun for the final results.
