Capricorn Eagles take flight

The Capricorn Group, the official sponsor of the Capricorn Eagles hosted a special send-off for the national women’s cricket team before they departed to Dubai to compete in the T20 International Tournament from 26 September to 3 October 2023.
In August, Capricorn Group, in collaboration with Capricorn Asset Management and Capricorn Private Wealth, extended its partnership with Cricket Namibia for a third year. The renewal of the sponsorship agreement reaffirms Capricorn Group’s support for Namibia’s national women’s cricket team, officially known as the Capricorn Eagles and their continuous commitment to advancing girls’ and women's cricket in Namibia.
“The remarkable strides achieved by the Capricorn Eagles, guided by Cricket Namibia, fill us with pride,” said Capricorn Group’s Marlize Horn at the send-off. “The growth and development we have witnessed are evidence of strong leadership and the strategic application of resources. We remain committed to our community, as we firmly believe that the investments we make today will yield positive outcomes for Namibian girls and women in the future. We wish the Capricorn Eagles all the best as they depart to Dubai for the T20 International League. We know that they will make us proud and fly the Namibian flag high.”
Cricket Namibia's vision for women's cricket in Namibia is to professionalise the women's game to support the players and to grow junior structures and participation through organised girls' cricket festivals and girls' cricket school leagues.
The Capricorn Eagles, representing the heart and spirit of Namibian cricket, will face off in six T20 International matches against the UAE women's national team. This series promises to be a showcase of skills from both teams.
National women’s coach Francois van der Merwe said, “We are excited to play international games against UAE. We hosted UAE in the recently held Capricorn Eagles series in April and beat them 2-0. We are now going to play in the unknown and it is going to be a different experience for the team. The humidity in Dubai will play a factor in the tour, but we are well prepared.”
The Capricorn Eagles have shown incredible growth, resilience, and skill over the past few years. The Dubai T20 International tournament is a perfect platform for the Capricorn Eagles to demonstrate their skills on the international stage and further solidify their position in global women's cricket.
