Final Edition of Biest Namibia Cup Launched – N$20 Million Invested in Three Years

Heading into its last and 3rd successive year and having already invested more than N$20 million thus far, Biest Namibia Limited has promised to deliver a much bigger and better 2015 edition of the popular annual Biest Namibia Cup.

Speaking at the official launch of the competition in Windhoek on Tuesday night, Biest Namibia Chief Executive Officer Sebby Kankondi said they firmly believe in empowering communities where they conduct their various businesses and thus investing in competitions such as the Biest Cup was a deliberate move solely based on reinvesting in youth, while also accelerating the pace of development within various communities.

“The past two editions of the tournament have really been exciting and accorded us an opportunity to warm the hearts of our aspiring and existing football talents. It’s our last year investing in football as we have decided to realign our social investment programme towards other community projects,” said Kankondi.

Also speaking at the launch, Deputy Minister of Youth, National Service, Sport and Culture, Juliet Kavetuna, applauded Biest Namibia for their unwavering contribution towards the development of football and sports in general.

“I applaud you for maintaining a healthy partnership and I really hope this partnership will continue in years to come,” said Kavetuna.

Action in the Round-of-32 will kick off on January 31 – February 4 in Windhoek, Rundu and Tsumeb. Local fans can look forward to a mouthwatering all-premiership clash between FNB Orlando Pirates and Tura Magic on a yet to be announced date and venue.

This year’s Man of the Match from the Round-of-16 will take home N$2 000 while Man of the Match in the final match of the competition is guaranteed a handsome N$5 000, to be voted by the media.

Top Goal Scorer of the tournament will walk away with a whopping N$25 000, while the fans stand a chance of winning tickets to go watch any of their English Premier League teams play against Sunderland Football Club at the Stadium of Light.

All expenses for the trip will be covered by Biest Namibia, while the winner will also attend training sessions of Sunderland and meet the players.
