Standard Bank Super Cup final is our biggest game- Isaacs
Tigers have the psychological advantage going into their next Saturday’s 2016 Standard Bank Super Cup final against African Stars at the majestic Sam Nujoma Stadium in what is traditionally the season’s curtain raiser.
The Standard Bank Super Cup awareness campaign made a turn at Football House on Saturday, 03 September with the fans again given a chance to meet and greet the players from the two teams as well as pose with the trophy and win tickets for September 10 “biggest game”.
Defending champions African Stars and MTC Premiership champions Tigers will meet on 10 September, 15h00 at the hallow ground that is the Sam Nujoma Stadium and Tigers coach Brain Isaacs reckons his side holds the advantage having won the last encounter between the two sides during the Dr. Hage Geingob Cup finals during August.
“We are fortunate enough to have played and beat them last time in the Hage Geingob Cup and we have the edge in terms of psychological preparedness. But there will no love lost when we meet on Saturday because Stars are a determined side and are defending champions and would also go for victory. So it will be a tracking game and it is the biggest game for us this year as we have never won the Super Cup and lost narrowly last year to Stars”.
Isaacs adds that his side is preparing very hard for this game and with the Namibia Premier League season still to be decided, all of pre-season will go into this game.
“The guys have been pushing very hard, before the Dr. Hage Geingob Cup and now going into the Standard Bank Super Cup and their fitness is top notch and we have go get to the field and do the IngweInyama faithful proud. Tigers on the move and we keep going strong”.
Tickets for the 2016 Standard Bank Super Cup are available on Computicket for N$ 30 each as from Monday.
