Tura Magic and United Stars to play only 25 minutes

Tura Magic Football Club (FC) and United Stars FC will on Saturday play only 25 minutes of their abandoned match.

The match was called off by the referee due to heavy rain at the Sam Nujoma Stadium on 06 December 2014.

At the time, Tura Magic were leading 4-1 of that Round 1 Premier League match.

Chief Administrator of the MTC Namibia Premier League (NPL), Tovey Hoebeb told Nampa on enquiry Monday that the two teams will not replay the entire match.

The match will resume at the same stadium at 15h00, and all substitutions and cautions will remain unchanged, as well as the players who were on the field at the time.

Tura Magic’s coach Timo Tjongarero told this agency on Monday that he is happy that they are just playing the remaining minutes.

“Fitness won’t really be a challenge here, but rather mental preparation which we have prepared for,” he said.
