Namibia FA present workshop for club managers


The Namibia Football Association (NFA) is planning to organise an administration and management workshop for Namibia Premier Football League club managers in line with FIifa’s vision to make football truly global.

The workshop is set for 25 to 28 May 2021 and its aim is to provide two representatives from the 12 Premiership clubs with practical know-how and insights on the administration of the game. It will cover key areas in the successful management of football clubs

“We would like the team managers of all the NPFL clubs to attend as well as a representative from each one of Namibia’s regions,’ said the interim technical director of the NFA, Jacqui Shipanga.

“We want to empower our administrators and managers, they hardly ever do administration courses, because we normally just focus on coaches courses.

“The workshop is aimed at providing practical know-how and insights on administration of the game and will cover key areas in the successful management of the game,” she added.

Sports consultant and Fifa instructor Mathew Haikali will facilitate the workshop, while Isack Hamata will be a guest instructor.

According to The Namibian, there will also be presentations by Shipanga, the Namibia Olympic Committee, the Namibia Sport Commission and the Namibian Sun, amongst others, while Tim Isaacs, the team manager of the Brave Warriors will share some insights on the role and responsibilities of team managers.

Some of the aspects that the workshop will cover include club operations, finance, marketing, communications, club licensing, and roles and responsibilities of team managers, as well as governance.

The course fee is R400 per person and prospective participants are urged to confirm their booking with Haikali.
