BOBBY Samaria will continue as the interim head coach of the Tafel Lager Brave Warriors, following blessings by the Executive Committee meeting held on 13-14 August in Windhoek.
Namibia will take on Congo in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers on 2 September at the Orlando Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa and Bobby Samaria and his technical team will steer the team until a substantive head coach is appointed.
The NFA will now start organising for the world cup qualifier so that the team can assemble in South Africa as soon as possible.
The executive committee also confirmed that with the announcement by President Hage Geingob on measures of Covid-19, leagues will resume as soon as FIFA is notified of the extension of the calendar due to the restrictions imposed by the pandemic.
The Brave Gladiators will also have their Awcon qualifiers home match against Tanzania in October played in South Africa too, due to the unfortunate lack of accredited stadia in Namibia.
The MTC NFA Cup will also resume and proceed from the Round of 16.
The Executive Committee took note of the impact of the registration of the Namibia Premier League as a federation with the Namibia Sports Commission. Players registration and transfers on the E-Connect will not be possible as well in competition under the FIFA member federations.
Club licensing, safety and security and general coordinators events, will also continue together with the roll out of the FIFA E-Connect Project as well as technical training and development will continue.
The audited financials statement for 2019-2020 were also approved, a first, for the NFA to have an unqualified financials statement.
Executive Committee members in attendance were Izak Fredericks, Netty Cloete, Peter Ndjulu, Iggy Hainghumbi, Shali Amakali and Robert Shimooshili. – nfa.org.na
