Speaking to New Era Sport yesterday, league’s coordinator Jens Unterlerchner said with the lockdown now tighten at the coastal towns of Swakopmund and Walvis Bay, indoor hockey action is likely to return in September.
“We still need to complete 43 matches. Due to the extension of the lockdown at the coast and the tightening of the stage 4 rules for the rest of the country, and we cannot tell you today when we will be able to continue with the indoor league. We are hoping for September, but this will depend on the next phase of regulations to be announced at the end of August only. Remember that our friends at the coast have not been allowed to practice since day one of the lockdown,” said Unterlerchner.
