We have kept most of our players and technical team and this year we aim to win the cup, Pieters said.
Hardap are drawn in Group A with Oshana, Omusati and host Zambezi.
Hardap's golden years in The Namibian Newspaper Cup came more than a decade ago when they finished as runners-up in 2004 and 2005 and then went one better to win the title in 2006 against fierce rival, ||Kharas.
