Kasu chairman Kuveri Tjonga said that the N$30 000 tourney attracted 13 netball and 16 football teams, and is expected to conclude next Saturday. “Due to the Covid-19 pandemic measures in place, no spectators will be allowed while teams will leave the field immediately after the final whistle to pave way for the next games.
The football teams registered with N$1 900 while the netball teams booked their places with N$1 000.
Tjonga said that Kasu tournaments have come a long way and are aimed at grooming young talent and shaping their careers for greener pastures, adding that the tourneys have been instrumental to encourage people to abstain from unhealthy activities while striving towards sports development.
The games are set to start at 09:00 with Young Stars taking on Inter Dee in the first game, followed by Otjomuise United and Life in the City. Thereafter Herero Mall will take on Okanguindi, followed by Unity of Windhoek versus Katutura Central on Saturday games.
