Namibia bags sponsorship deal
The Namibia Hockey Union (NHU) has received a major sponsorship of more than N$1 million for a period of three years.
Seaflower announced a sponsorship of more than N$1 million in the run-up to the 2018 Indoor World Cup, to add to the N$40 000 received from Investec Namibia as sponsorship for the Indoor Test Series between Namibia and South Africa.
Seaflower handed over a sponsorship of N$890 400, on top of the N$120 000 that they had already sponsored for the Test series against South Africa in August in Durban.
The president of the NHU, Marc Nel, thanked both companies for their support, saying their aim was to qualify for the 2018 Indoor World Cup.
“I want to thank Seaflower for their belief in women's hockey - to receive a sponsorship of more than a million dollars is just unbelievable. They already sponsored our Test series against South Africa in Durban in August, while the sponsorship will include our preparation for next year's African qualifiers for the Indoor World Cup, and then when we hopefully qualify, for the 2018 Indoor World Cup in Argentina as well,” he said.
Innocencio Verde, the general manager of the Seaflower Group of Companies said they were impressed by the national women's team's results and the transparent manner in which they conducted their affairs.
“We decided to sponsor them because of the results that they have achieved, while the management was very transparent in their dealings with us. Since we started sponsoring the team their indoor world ranking has improved from 17 to 14 while they are also ranked second in Africa,” he said.
