Telecom Namibia connects with 2014 African Women's Championship

Telecom Namibia has partnered with the Confederation of African Football to become the headline sponsor of the 2014 African Women’s Championship, in a deal worth N$6m (€422,500/$580,000).

At the signing of the agreement on Tuesday in Windhoek, Frans Ndoroma, Managing Director of Telecom Namibia said "our decision to sponsor the tournament was two-fold - primarily it is a strategic business move but it should not take away from the ambition to promote the country's ability to stage an event of the magnitude of the African Women's Championships.

"As a fully-fledged state-owned enterprise, we pride ourselves with a deep-rooted sense of duty to support corporate social investment initiatives; and Telecom has a proud record of achievements in all aspects of special responsibility, especially in sport, i.e., netball, boxing and hockey,"

Namibia Football Association (NFA) President, John Muinjo added that to host the biennial competition is a milestone achievement worth celebrating.

"I'm delighted and proud to announce that Namibia will host the Caf Women Championships in October. Our objective is to get more events of this nature in future. We should not leave any stone unturned and not rest on our laurels so that we ensure that we host an unforgettable tournament," said Muinjo.

Seven teams will emerge from the qualifiers to join hosts Namibia for the final tournament, also a qualifier for the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup in Canada next year.

The ninth edition of the biennial women’s football tournament takes place in Namibia from October 11th to 25th, this year.
