REHOBOTH, 19 MAY (NAMPA) - Spiders Football Club (FC) from Rehoboth has withdrawn from the Hardap Second Division.
The league started last Sunday, with the opening round producing 17 goals.
Michael Situde, chairperson of the Hardap Second Division told Nampa on Thursday Spiders withdrew from the league, citing financial difficulties and the state of local football referring to the inactivity of the Namibia Premier League and the struggle to secure a sponsor.
Spiders wanted to know why we are in a rush to start the league since other regions have not started. It is unfortunate that we lost them, he said.
Situde said all teams were informed well in advance about the kick-off dates and teams cannot be asking such questions at this point.
This weekend will see Round Two of the games taking place, with games scheduled for Kalkrand, Gochas, Gibeon and Mariental.
