WINDHOEK, 09 JUN (NAMPA) – Newly promoted Namibia Premier League (NPL) outfit, Young Chiefs Football Club (FC) is calling on the northern community to give their inputs on how to keep the club in the NPL.
The team that plied its trade in the North-West First Division (NWFD) during the 2014/15 season, gained promotion to Namibia's elite league after winning its stream with 41 points in April this year.
Since Oshakati City FC was relegated to the first division, there has not been a football team from the northern side of Namibia in the country’s elite league.
Young Chiefs Public Relations Officer (PRO), Nicanor Kapuka, told Nampa on Tuesday that they are joining the elite league to stay.
“It has been a long time since we had a team from the four regions in the NPL and as a team, we are here to represent all the people in the northern side of Namibia.
“We want to bring back those glory days that Oshakati City and King Kauluma (KK) Palace showed our people in the north,” said Kapuka.
He called on former footballers, supporters, sponsors and other football teams’ management residing in the four northern regions of Oshana, Omusati, Oshikoto and Ohangwena to attend an information gathering meeting by Young Chiefs FC on Saturday at the Oshakati Secondary School.
“We really want the club to be in the premier league for a long time and that can only happen if we involve input from the community members and those who have the knowledge on how things are run at the top level. We are calling on everyone to come join us on Saturday and give their ideas of how to run things in the 2015/16 NPL season,” he stated.
