16 April 2019 | Sports
Ngatuuane Hange, one of the organisers, told Nampa the matches will start on Friday at 08:00 at the Okozonduzu sports grounds.
The village is situated about 30 kilometres south of Okondjatu in the Otjozondjupa Region.
He said the competition is aimed at promoting sport among rural communities and the number of teams participating keep increasing every year.
“We have two football stadiums and one netball court, and the number of teams participating are many; thus teams must respect time,” he said.
The football category teams were divided into two groups, while the netball teams will play knockout games.
The netball sides will compete for N$16 000 in prize money, whereas footballers will vie for N$34 000.
The winner in the netball category will take home N$8 000, 12 gold medals and a trophy, while the football winners will walk away with N$14 000, 20 gold medals and a trophy.
The runners-up in netball and football will walk away with N$4 000 and N$8 000, respectively.
In netball, the losing semi-finalists will walk away with N$2 000 each, while their football counterparts will each receive N$4 000.
Special prizes worth N$4 000 will be given to the best player, goalkeeper, defender, midfielder and top goal scorer of the tournament in football.
Omazera-based Chief Keja won the netball competition last year, while Omapumba from Okondjatu were crowned champs in the football category.
