Pre-season cup to light up Eros

01 March 2018 | Sports

The Chicitos Khomasdal Pre-Season Cup will take place this weekend at the Eros Primary School in Windhoek.

The cup is played in preparation for a social football league, which will commence in Windhoek on 17 March.

Four local football clubs - Chicitos, Dahlia, Amigos and Funky Town Football Club - will take part in the one-day tournament. There will also be a curtain-raiser between AIJ Old Stars against Classic Football Club.

The Khomasdal-based teams will start the day with semi-final clashes.

One of the organisers, Elton Job, said winning the tournament was simply for bragging rights and that it would get the players ready for the social league.

“We want to keep the players active for what is to come. We are excited about the weekend and urge football fans to turn up in numbers to watch the games. There is rivalry between the clubs and there will be tough competition from each to lift the cup at the end of the day,” said Job.

Job added the social football league was introduced to keep youthful players away from social evils and to hone their skills.

“Some of this players did not get the chance to compete in the premier league, so this is an opportunity for them to show their skills and to open doors for themselves.”

Amigos coach Asim Sissing said the cup competition is about the community coming together.

He added that Saturday will reveal who the better team is.

“'We don't want to say a lot now; we will do the talking on the pitch,” he said.

The first match will kick off at 10:00. Entrance is free but fans will be charged for refreshments.
