Final inspection for Newspaper Cup

12 February 2019 | Sports

The Namibian Newspaper Cup organising committee will visit Mariental on 12 February for a final inspection meeting with the local organising committee (LOC), as the town readies itself to host the cup during the Easter weekend from 19 to 22 April.

Late last year the Hardap Region was chosen to host the 2019 edition of the much-anticipated regional under-20 football and netball competition, beating the Oshana and //Karas regions.

The last time the region and the town of Mariental hosted the cup was in 2005, when Hardap lost 0-1 to Otjozondjupa in the final before making amends by winning in 2006 at Walvis Bay in the Erongo Region. They were also losing the finalists in 2004.

As part of the criteria to hosting the Newspaper Cup, the host town must have a stadium with artificial or natural grass, and have a facility with a minimum capacity for 2 000 people, as well as suitable lighting for night games and a PA system.

Bidding towns were also informed that the Namibia Football Association (NFA) and The Namibian newspaper retain the commercial rights to the competition and that there should be acceptable accommodation for a delegation from each region, as well for match officials and NFA and newspaper representatives.

Medical staff should be on standby for the duration of the tournament. Having the necessary catering and security are also among the conditions for hosting the cup.
