Namibia Premier League vows to take action against United Stars

WINDHOEK: The Namibia Premier League (NPL) has vowed to take disciplinary action against Rundu-based United Stars Football Club (FC) for failing to show up for the continuation of an abandoned match against Tura Magic FC here on Saturday.

The two NPL football clubs were scheduled to play the remaining 25 minutes of their match, which was abandoned in mid-play (at 4-1 in favour of Tura Magic) due to heavy rain at the Sam Nujoma Stadium on 06 December 2014.

United Stars did not pitch up to play the remaining minutes of that match this past Saturday, while Tura Magic FC and the match officials all came to the stadium ready for action.

Tura Magic stood in the field for the 25 minutes they had to play.

NPL Chairman, Johnny Doeseb told Nampa yesterday that the league prosecutor will look into the matter and the appropriate rules will then be applied to the case.

Upon enquiry, United Star’s Public Relations Officer Daniel Namwira said the reason why they could not come to play the match was because their players are not yet back in Rundu from the holidays.
