The stakes are high in the Namibia Football Association Women Super League Cup final as the winner between GALZ & Goals or Tura Magic will walk away with R40 000 on Saturday at the NFA Technical Centre in Windhoek.
Namibia’s FA announced the competition’s incentives in a bid to stoke the fires of both camps ahead of what is expected to be an entertaining final match. The runner-up will pocket R25 000.
The WSL Cup played over a period of five weeks since late last year, had fourteen (14) teams contesting and it is now down to two teams, Tura Magic and Galz & Goals. The defending champions Khomas Nampol and V-Power Angels will battle for third and fourth place at 10h00.
“We are expecting fireworks on Saturday. I think these prizes will help everyone to bring their best performance and put on a great show,” said WSL Cup tournament director, Tovey Hoebeb.
Individual prizes will have the Best Coach, Player of the Tournament and Fair play winner each get R3 000 while Best Team Manager, Print Journalist, Broadcaster, and Top Goal Scorer get R2 000 each.
Best Match Official and Assistant Match of the Tournament, Best Goalkeeper, Defender, Midfielder and Youngster walk away with R1 000 each.
R10 000 will be for fourth place, R6 000 for fifth place, and R4 000 for sixth place.
Tura Magic skipper Anna Shikusho is leading the top goal scorer table with 15 goals, while Beverly Ueziua of Galz & Goals is second with 8 goals.
Magic are favourites for the top prize, having lost out to Nampol in 2017 when the cup was last held, and steamrolled V-Power Angels 11-0 over two semi-final legs.
“We are very excited about Saturday’s match. Both teams are relatively strong, so it will not be an easy match, but I believe in my team and that we can win this cup,” said Magic captain, Lovisa Mulunga.
Her opposite number, Lydia Eixas, said they are underdogs, but they are not going to roll over.
