REHOBOTH, 07 MAR (NAMPA) – Southern Stream First Division (SSFD) outfit Khomas Namibian Police Force (NamPol) Football Club are readying themselves to do battle in the Debmarine Namibia Cup Elimination tournament slated for the Vineta Stadium in Swakopmund this weekend.
Gareth Fortune #Eichab, coach of Khomas NamPol, on Wednesday told Nampa his team has been busy with friendlies since the start of the year and he sees no reason why they cannot win the elimination matches.
“We are up against Young Brazilians from Karasburg, who beat us in the quarter-finals in 2016, and we are ready for revenge,” #Eichab remarked about his team’s first knock-out clash in the competition.
He said Debmarine Namibia Cup matches only come once a season and winning the SSFD elimination matches will go a long way in defining their season.
“We need to win this one for confidence and for a kick-start to our season, whereby we have decided to rewrite the Namibian football history by becoming the first uniformed team to win silverware and also to follow in the footsteps of our predecessors to compete in the flagship league of the country,” he added.
The winner of the 12-team elimination tournament will advance to the last 32 of the competition.
The Debmarine Namibia Cup is the country’s biggest cup competition, which kicked off across the country last weekend and will continue with clubs in the first and second divisions battling it out for places in the competition’s round of 32.
The North-West First Division, the Omaheke and Hardap regions’ second divisions will also continue with elimination rounds this weekend.

Flamingoes vs SKW 07h00
Rebels vs Try Again 09h00
Windhoek United vs Spoilers 11h00
Khomas NamPol vs Young Brazilians 13h00
