WINDHOEK, 27 JUL (NAMPA) - After underlining their supremacy as local football powerhouse for a record fourth time in a row, 2013/14 Mobile Telecommunications Limited (MTC)/Namibia Premier League (NPL) title winner Black Africa held a victory march in Windhoek.
The Katutura-based football club’s victory march on Saturday started off at the Namibia Football Association (NFA)’s Football House in Katutura. They drove through Kamberipa Street to the Soweto and Dolam residential areas to their final destination, the Katutura Youth Sports Complex opposite Shoprite Katutura.
Albert Makabanyene, manager of the Black Africa (BA) Supporters’ Club, told Nampa during the victory march the club held the event to celebrate the importance of winning the league for a fourth year in a row with their supporters.
“We are doing all this to thank our supporters for being with us and coming in numbers to the stadiums to cheer the team on for all these years,” said Makabanyene.
Black Africa earlier this month scooped N.dollars 1 million at the MTC/NPL annual awards ceremony as the title winners.
The club’s midfielder Willy ‘Awilo’ Stephanus is the 2013/14 MTC/NPL Player of the Season and Players’ Player of the Year, while BA coach Brian Isaacs won N.dollars 20 000 as the Coach of the Season.
