The MTC Namibia Premier League (NPL) awards ceremony will see Black Africa duo Dynamo Fredericks and Wesley Katjiteo up against Issaskar Gurirab of Life Fighters for the 2018/19 footballer of the season ultimate prize.

Gurirab is tipped to walk away with the award, as he is also nominated in the players' player of the season category as well against Katjiteo and Absalom Iimbondi of Tigers.

The young player who is currently on national duty with the Brave Warriors in Dubai, as they prepare for the Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon), will also be crowned top goal scorer of the season after netting 22 goals.

Regarding preparations for the event, NPL spokesperson Andre Gariseb said everything is on track. “All the parties are on board and the event will also be live on the national broadcaster, NBC.

“Just to add flair to the event we will have live performances by the likes of Tswazis and KP Illest. The event will also incorporate the Standard Bank Top 8 awards,” said Gariseb.

Black Africa are the league winners after a haul of 64 points from 28 matches, while scoring 66 and conceding 22 goals.

The champions won 19 of their 28 matches, losing only two and dropping two points on seven occasions.

African Stars, who missed out on defending their title by six points, finished the season with 19 wins, six draws and six loses. Tura Magic had one of their best seasons in the premier league since gaining promotion and finished third.

Unam, who also had a good season, came in fourth with 11 wins, nine draws and eight losses, while registering 42 points after 28 matches.

The NPL awards will feature high-profile sports personalities, some of who will present the awards.

Other nominees include Fortune Eichab (Tura Magic), Paulus Shipanga (Black Africa) and Nicholas Woody Jacobs (Unam) for coach of the season.

The referee of the season title is being contested by Jackson Pavaza (Otjozondjupa), Jonas Shongedi (Oshana) and Nehemia Shoovaleka (Ohangwena).

The assistant referee of the season is being contested between Matheus Nevonga (Hardap), Mathew Kanyanga (Khomas), and Eneas Shikongo (Khomas).
