Black Africa and African Stars will clash in the Standard Bank

Namibia Super Cup on 30 August at the Sam Nujoma Stadium.

SBN in conjunction with the Namibia Football Association (NFA)

launched the Standard Bank Super Cup sponsorship worth N$3

million over three years.

Namibian Football Association (NFA) Secretary General Barry

Rukoro said the Association is excited about the prospect.

“It will be the first of its kind with so at stake and we are all looking

forward to it. The league is now concluded and we have the two

teams confirmed to partake in the inaugural edition and it does not

get better or bigger than Stars versus BA. Another chance to a

great football spectacle and advert for local football," Rukoro said.

The once­off match winners will be N$500 000 richer and the

runners­up N$200 000 and as expected there will be a lot of

marketing and promotions in the build up for the match and

Standard Bank’s Head of Marketing, Thaddeus Maswahu

elaborated.

“It will be an event not to forget and we are pulling all the stops to

make sure it goes down as one of the best days of local football.

We plan to start the day as early as possible with a lot of

entertainment in the buildup and also we will be having promotions

to create the necessary atmosphere at the football match. The

sports media journalists will have a chance predict the winner and

walk away with at least N$ 2 500 and many more for the general

public” said Maswahu.

Maswahu added that the selection of the venue would have not

been better.

“We deliberately chose the Sam Nujoma Stadium because we

know where the people who loves the game lives and we know

what atmosphere the stadium can produce with the supporters so

close to the action. I have no doubt the two teams will deliver on

the pitch," he said.

The two teams will also be presented with a special playing kit for

the encounter and in the words of Standard Bank Chief Executive

Officer (CEO), Junias Mungunda; football is indeed powerful for

unity.
