A decision as to when and how the inactive Namibia Rugby Premier League will start is set to be taken at this weekend’s meeting of the Namibia Rugby Union (NRU) council members. The council meeting will take place this Saturday in the capital.
The return of the rugby premier league has been on the cards for some time now, but there has not been much movement due to the lack of a principle sponsor for the league and also clubs struggling to register themselves for the planned new season.
Covid-19 restrictions have also been another thorny issue hindering the NRU to plan for the smooth return of the league. But NRU chief executive officer Theo Grunewald yesterday informed New Era Sport that this weekend’s gathering will make a concrete decision on how and when the league will return to action, amidst the rampant Covid-19 pandemic.
“The return of the league is on the agenda of this weekend’s meeting, that is where the union will decide when the league will return. We will look at possible dates and all other logistics that will help the league return. We have informed all relevant stakeholders to attend this weekend’s meeting, so, heading into next week, a decision should be in place,” he said.
