Sports Stadiums are under renovation – Geingob

Staff Reporter

PRESIDENT Hage Geingob said that it is important to ensure that appropriate supportive infrastructure, administration and services are in place as a means of providing a conducive environment for young, gifted and budding sports stars to achieve success.

Geingob said this during the State of the Nation Address (SONA), adding that the government is cognizant of the fact that the country’s sports and recreation facilities as well as the governance of some of the Sporting Codes are not at the expected level.

“Thus, the Ministry of Sport, Youth and National Service has commissioned a “Facility Audit” to renovate and upgrade the Independence Stadium in Windhoek and the sports stadiums in Swakopmund and Oshakati,” said Geingob.

Geingob said that this is done in anticipation of Namibia winning the bid to co-host the 2027 African Cup of Nations, alongside Botswana.

“We also do this with a sense of duty, to ensure that players representing our national football team, the Brave Warriors, are able to train and play on home ground. The current situation where our national team must always travel elsewhere to practice and play their matches because of sub-standard facilities, is regrettable and will be rectified without delay,” the president said.
