If all goes according to plan, Namibia will be amongst the countries that stand to immensely benefit from a new major global rugby competition, planned for 2026. Chairperson of the Fifa Normalisation Committee Bisey Uirab yesterday said if the financially crippled Namibia Football Association (NFA) is to be rescued from the jaws of demise, serious structural and financial adjustments would have to be made. When reflecting on my past experiences with the previous Fifa Normalisation Committee for the Namibia Football Association (NFA), I’m reminded of the wise words of former US president Barack Obama, who once said: “If you have to win a campaign by dividing people, you are not going to be able to govern them. You won’t be able to unite them later if that’s how you start.” President Hage Geingob and Confederation of African Football (Caf) president Patrice Motsepe yesterday strongly shared the same desire to swiftly and seamlessly see the infights that has engulfed Namibian football come to an end. Confederation of African Football (Caf) president Patrice Motsepe on Saturday again called on all interested parties to put their inflated egos aside and strive to get local football up and running, saying he and his team will ensure that nobody stands in the way of progress. Veteran Namibian hooker Torsten van Jaarsveld, who plays professionally for the French Pro D2 side Aviron Bayonnais, was recently honoured with the prestigious Olympic Midi Oscars for his outstanding performance throughout the season. World Boxing Association (WBA) Pan African super bantamweight champion Mateus ‘The Beast’ Heita, who was initially set to defend his title against Jonas Matheus on 28 May at the Kuisebmond Stadium in Walvis Bay, has now been accorded an opportunity to take a bite at the bigger cherry. Namibia’s foremost football export Peter Shalulile is leading a long list of nominees for the upcoming South Africa Premier Soccer League (PSL) 2021/22 Season Awards, where he has been shortlisted in three prestigious categories.
