Netball premier league on the radar
13 July 2020 | Sports
Netball Namibia (NN) is hard at work as it plans to form a first-of-its-kind Namibia netball premier league.
The league, which will be sponsored by MTC, will consist of 12 teams from the 14 regions of the country.
In an interview with Nampa last Thursday, NN vice president Rebecca Goagoses said they do not have a specific date for when the league will kick off, as they still have play-offs that need to be conducted. “The premier league will consist of two teams per region from Erongo, Khomas and Otjozondjupa; that will make six teams, while the rest of the spots will be made up of teams from the remaining 11 regions,” she said.
33 teams in three pools
Goagoses added that 33 teams from the 11 regions will be put into three pools with the top two from each pool at the end of the play-offs forming part of the league. “We have not yet decided on the dates for when the play-offs and the league will kick off, but we are busy with the logistics,” Goagoses said.
NN received a three-year N$4.2 million sponsorship from MTC.
