Omaruru to Host Zeraeua Royal House Tournament

The town of Omaruru in the Erongo Region will host the Chief Christian Eerike Zeraeua Royal House Cup from 4 to 5 October 2014.

Jeffrey Kavendjii of the Zeraeua Traditional Authority on Tuesday announced a sponsorship worth N$40 000 from Bucks Construction and Cleaning Services towards the two-day netball and football tournament.

The tournament will serve as the 88th year anniversary celebration of the Zeraeua Royal Family, and will be held at the Mokeba Stadium.

Speaking during a media briefing here on Tuesday, event organiser Andrew Tjahikika said the tournament will serve as a commemoration event and a way to keep the youth busy with sports rather than being at Cuca shops.

“Last year we had a N$30 000 sponsorship but this year the sponsorship has been improved to N$40 000. We are calling on all netball or football teams to come to Omaruru and have fun with us,” said Tjahikika.

N$28 000 will go towards football while N$12 000 is being set aside for the netball tournament.

The winning football team will walk away with N$14 000, while the runners-up will get N$7 000 and semi-final losers N$3 500 each.

In the netball category the winners will walk away with N$6 000. The runners-up will win N$3 000 and the semi-finals losers N$1 500 each.

Registration per team will be N$1 500 and the draw will take place at the Katutura Community Hall in Windhoek on 30 September.
