The initiative is part of council’s community sport development programme. Council will also support the team in its aim to reach premiership status within the next five years. Furthermore, council is in the process of engaging businesses to support the team in any way possible.
“It is a team named after the town and we aim to have the support of the entire town of about 10 000 residents of which all will be encouraged to pay annual membership fees,” said Melody Gontes of the council.
Currently the team plays in the second division and nearly gained promotion to the first division, only to lose the first spot to Swakopmund Football Club. The team is coached by renowned Brave Warriors 1998 legend, Wallace Doeseb.
