THE inaugural Namibia Football Association (NFA) Crown Build It Under-13 football event had been described as a much-needed event needed in Katutura.
The event that attracted over 10 primary schools from Namibia’s largest township displayed hidden talent and hunger for entertainment that needed to be exposed.
Speaking to Confidente on the success of the event, NFA Youth Development Deputy Officer, Jakes Amaning said they would want to have the event take place either on a monthly or quarterly basis.
“We are going to communicate proposals to the NFA and the Build It company to consider having the event regularly because of the desire expressed last Saturday,” said Amaning. “From where I was sitting there was pure excitement and joy from all pupils, teachers and parents alike”.
The colourful event saw Tobias Hainyeko being crowned champions of the inaugural event. The event also saw the different schools performing cultural dancing and poem recitations.
Amaning said the event demonstrated that there is talent that needs to be nurtured before the young lads gets to the under-17 soccer league.
