Groot Aub plans another tourney
30 September 2020 | Sports
The settlement of Groot Aub, 50 km south of Windhoek, will be a hive of activity when football teams across Namibia vie for the prizes on offer at the third edition of the annual Queensab Soccer Bonanza.
The tournament, which will take place on 3 and 4 October, will be held for the third time and is aimed at giving a platform to local footballers to once again showcase their talents.
Dates Eleven from Naute Dam near Keetmanshoop won the first edition against Dolam Pirates from Katutura; with Young Generations from Windhoek winning last year's edition against Groot Aub-based Deon Eleven.
Since the flagship league of Namibia has been idle for over a year, it is a good opportunity for players to gain match fitness in anticipation of the kick-off of organised football in the country.
"I’m calling on all coaches from all three divisions in the country to come and scout for talent. Players to watch out are Aiden Beukes and Cruzido Fliede, young players with huge potential,” said tournament organiser Rhonie ‘Rhuuskie’ //Garoeb.
The tournament is open to all teams. All Covid-19 protocols will be adhered to.
Vendors can sell their food items but need to pay N$300 per stall for two days.
Fees to be paid
The entry fee for the tourney is N$1 900. The draw will take place on 2 October at Groot Aub Junior Secondary School (14:00). Only teams that pay their registration fee will be in the draw. The winners will receive N$20 000, new soccer kit, a floating trophy and 20 gold medals
The runners-up will walk away with N$10 000, new soccer kit and 20 silver medals. The semi-finalists will take home N$5 000 each.
