Hopsol ordered to allow Stars to play in the league


The High Court in Namibia has ordered the management of the MTC Hopsol Soccer League to allow African Stars’ Under 15, 17, and 19 teams to take part in the next round of fixtures of the youth league.

New Era newspaper reported that the court also ordered Collin Benjamin, Guido Kandziora, and Wieland Klinger as first, second and third respondents to pay the costs of the application instituted by African Stars Sport Club.

The matter was recently removed from the roll and regarded as finalised.

The decision by the Hopsol Youth League on 24 March 2021 to bar the three teams from participating in the league is thus declared null and void.

The youth football league’s decision to bar African Stars is, according to a source, because of pressure from the Namibia Football Association (NFA).

Stars’ chairman Patrick Kauta has had a long standing battle with the national football body.
