A yet to be determined number of under-privileged students from the University of Namibia (Unam) will soon benefit from the just-introduced The Dog Social Charity Cup.
The Cup held at the Unam’s main campus on Saturday, saw Mshasho Football Club taking top honours smiling with a cool N$ 10 000 to the bank, while runner up Coca-Cola B Team settled for N$ 6 000 and third placed MVA Fund took home N$ 4 500 respectively.
Speaking to Confidente Mshasho Sport Officer, Etuna Iimene said the number of students to benefit from the proceeds is still to be confirmed by both Unam and the Mashasho Trust Fund.
He said the charity cup attracted 18-teams while close to 3 000 spectators enjoyed the football spectacle. Later in the evening, The Dog entertained music lovers to some smoothing musical tunes.
Iimene said that plans are underway to have the charity cup as an annual event while sport codes like netball, volleyball and chess will be introduced in 2019.
He thanked the Brave Warriors head coach Ricardo Mannetti and former senior football players who assisted in organizing the event while also giving gratitude to former Namibia Premier League (NPL) players for their various contributions.
The initiative came about as a result of the collaboration between Unam and Mshasho Trust Fund to help assist students from previously disadvantaged communities.
