The Maize Triangle Soccer League (MTSL) will restart during the weekend of 5 September, Touch & Go spokesperson and league member Jefta Gaoab has announced.

The league, which host clubs from Tsumeb, Grootfontein and Otavi, had been stopped due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Chelsea, Chief Santos, Benfica, Touch & Go and other northern clubs from the area participate in the local football league.

The small towns of Otavi, Grootfontein and Tsumeb demarcate the Maize Triangle, a relatively high-rainfall area with a flourishing agriculture sector centred mainly around the cultivation of maize and lucerne, some of which is under irrigation.

“We planned to restart with the matches by September and that will enable us to conclude the season.

“The league organisers shifted the dates to September in order to give the players and teams time to get ready and to be fit again.

“We all know that the players have not been that active because of the pandemic and that is why it is important for them to get that space for proper preparation,” Gaoab said.

Newcastle FC will host Touch & Go FC in the first encounter at the Oscar Norich Stadium, followed by a match between Benfica and Chelsea FC on 5 September.

Liberators FA are pitted against Moving Arrows FC, while FC Dynamos plays Kaltes Wasser FA on the same day.

Week 21 of the football league will be concluded with a match between Nampol Oshikoto FC and former Namibia Premier League giants Chief Santos FC.

The teams will then continue with matches on 6 September at the same stadium with Chelsea FC battling it out against Gerros !Urikhob FC.

Liberators FA will play the second matches of the fixtures against Young Rangers FC, while Benfica meet Chief Santos FC.

Newcastle FC will also battle Kaltes Wasser FA before Dynamos confront Touch & Go FC.



Teams with game in hand

“Young Rangers FC and Moving Arrows will also play their games in hand, as well as Gerros !Urikhob and Nampol Oshikoto,” Gaoab added.

After the league comes to an end, all clubs that finish in the top eight will battle it out in a NamPower Top 8 Cup.



AGM to be held

Maize Triangle Soccer League (MTSL) organisers will also hold their annual general meeting.

“This meeting will touch on the opening of a youth football league in the triangle too.”
