Tigers count on winning habit ahead of Dr. Hage Geingob Cup


Tigers and football fans should make hay of the ticket prize and free transport to the Independence Stadium for this weekend to support their beloved IngweInyama to victory in the 2016 Dr. Hage Geingob Cup.

Tigers captain Absalom Iimbondi calls on Tigers supporters to fill the stadium on Saturday and Sunday for the prestigious Dr. Hage Geingob Cup in which Tigers will compete for the first time and have set their eyes on the title.

“ We are going to compete for the first time and will carry on doing well and winning this cup is our priority right now. We have won the league and come Sunday, we must lift the Dr. Hage Geingob Cup. Our president turns 75 and what better way for Tigers to celebrate and appreciate him by winning it” Iimbondi states.

On Saturday, 06 August, the programme starts of at 12h00 as the Baby Warriors take on Congo in the second round of the CAF U/17 AFCON qualifiers to be followed at 14h00 by the Tigers versus Tigers clash. Pirates and Sundowns will then take to the field at 16h00 to complete day-one action.

Iimbondi reckons Tigers will reach the final. “We know Stars will come with a point to prove but we plan to surprise them on Saturday. Winning should become our habit and we need to put Stars to bed on Saturday. We won our place to play in the Cup and that will should could for something, our class” Iimbondi warns.

The reigning MTC Premiership Player of the Year calls on fans to buy the tickets and come have a feast with the four high-profile clubs.

“Imagine, Tigers, Stars, Sundowns and Pirates at one venue. All teams have some new faces and you need to come see them all as well. You can’t ask for more and it will be exciting and memorable. Don’t watch on TV, come and be with us and make it a spectacle”, Iimbondi states.

On Sunday, again at 12h00, Aweh Aweh vs Madiba will play in an exhibition match and at 14h00, the third-place playoff match will take play before the final match at 16h00.

Tickets for the prestigious humorous competition are selling from Computicket for N$20 for a double-header. However, fans can also purchase a N$30 ticket for both days. Free transport is arranged for both days.
