The Namibian Fisheries Institute (Namfi) soccer team defeated the University of Namibia (Unam) 1-0 and pocketed the inaugural edition of the Oceans Cup.

Lisias “Chicco” Amupala scored the winner for Namfi in the first half and ensured that his team pocketed N$1 600, a floating trophy and gold medals.

Runners up Unam received N$1 000. Seawork Fish Processors sponsored the prize money and Marine Ropes the trophy and medals.

Eight teams entered the tournament with all teams accommodating four female players, in line with this year’s World Oceans Day theme “Oceans and gender equality”.

Titus Shaanika of the Namibian Nature Foundation (NNF) expressed his satisfaction with the event and said the organisation was looking forward to making it an annual tournament.

“We will consider hosting the next tournament in Henties Bay as was suggested by the minister of fisheries, mr. Bernard Esau. Potential sponsors are most welcome to come on board.”

Namfi defeated Fisheries Observer Agency (FOA) 9-8 in a penalty shootout after a goalless draw in the first semi-final.



Unam also defeated Hangana 4-1 in a penalty shootout after a 1-1 draw in the second semi-final.

FOA defeated Seawork 2-1, Namfi defeated Municipality of Walvis Bay 3-2, Hangana defeated Tunacor 7-6 via penalties after a 1-1 draw, and Unam received a bye in the quarter final round.
