Namib Daughters grateful for donation
22 January 2021 | Sports
Swakopmund-based women’s soccer team, Namib Daughters, received a timely donation worth an undisclosed amount from Tututango recently.
The donation includes ten pairs of soccer boots, ten sets of trainings kits, ten pairs of shin guards and four soccer balls.
Namib Daughters head coach Ryaan Matsi, expressed his appreciation of the donation, saying it would aid his team in the upcoming season.
“It means a lot to the team. The team has been struggling to get soccer boots, balls and shin guards. We no longer have to ask around for these items, meaning our first eleven will always be ready to play,” he said.
The team is preparing for their next fixture which will take place on 6 February in Okahandja.
The coastal team will be up against Okakarara FC in the group stages of the 2021 Namibia Football Association (NFA) Women’s Super Cup.
“The fact that the schools are starting a bit late, gives us more time to get all our players together. Come 6 February, we will see what happens,” said Matsi.
Namib Daughters are also planning on taking part in the 2021 Skorpion Zinc NFA Women’s Super League, which starts in March.
Tututango founder Thilo Trochim said that he made the donation on behalf of the company because he wanted to follow his heart and do the right thing.
Tututango was founded last year to help and educate young people by empowering them to effect positive change in the world.
