GROOT AUB, 25 MAY (NAMPA) – Black Africa Football Club (FC) on Saturday hosted an Under-15 schools tournament at Groot-Aub village, situated some 56 kilometres south of the capital.
Schools at Groot-Aub participated in the tournament, which was a social responsibility initiative organized jointly by Black Africa FC and First National Bank (FNB).
Members of the Groot Aub community gathered at the Groot-Aub Primary School on Saturday to watch Under-15 football and netball matches between teams from Groot-Aub Primary School, Niklaas Witbooi Primary School and Groot-Aub Junior Secondary School.
At the same occasion, the Namibia Premier League (NPL) defending champions Black Africa FC also donated balls for soccer and netball to the three schools.
Groot-Aub Primary School Principal, Hendrik Jagger opened the schools tournament officially, by urging the netball and football players to compete as disciplined sportspeople during the one-day tournament.
“Today we celebrate a fun day in our community here in our football fields or netball courts. Let us not get angry when fouled by other athletes, but we should focus on competing fairly while winning for our teams,” said Jagger.
The winning schools in football and netball were to receive winners’ trophies and medals, sponsored by Black Africa FC.
Albert Makabanyene, Manager of Black Africa Supporters’ Club said it was an honor for them as a football club to fulfill their social responsibility by giving something back to less fortunate communities.
“A month ago, we donated school uniforms, jerseys and shoes to the Tanidare Parish of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in the Republic of Namibia (ELCRN) in Katutura, and we are feeling proud to be in Groot-Aub to give something to a community outside Windhoek” said Makabanyene
