REHOBOTH, 10 SEP (NAMPA) – Hoachanas in the Hardap Region will be a hive of activity when some 30 teams convene there for the annual Hardap Super Cup tournament on 28 and 29 September.
Last year, 32 teams participated in the tournament previously known as ‘Game on Sports Bar Tournament’, with Kaizer Chiefs from Arandis winning the 2018 edition 1-0 against Dolam Pirates from Windhoek.
The tournament amount is N.dollars 30 000, with the winners pocketing N.dollars 15 000, while the runner-up will walk away with N.dollars 9 000 and 20 silver medals.
The semi-final losers will each get N.dollars 3 000 for their efforts.
The registration amount per team is N.dollars 1 700 and teams can register in advance or register on the draw day.
Only three Namibia Premier League players are allowed per team.
The two finalists will play in new kits sponsored by the tournament organiser, radio personality Ricardo |Hawixa ||Garoëb.
The draw will be conducted on 27 September.
||Garoëb told Nampa in an interview that hosting the tournament provides bush league players with the opportunity to be tested against more seasoned opponents to find out if they can compete with the best.
||Garoeb urged businesses in and around Hoachanas to plough back into the community by hosting events like sports tournaments.
“As part of our social responsibility, we should plough back into society as a token of appreciation. It is our duty to entertain them with such activities by sponsoring it,” he said.
