The Namibia Football Association (NFA) will honor the memories of the late Robbie Savage with a fitting send-off on 20 August at the Sam Nujoma Stadium as Namibia takes on Comoros in the African Nations Championship (CHAN) third round second leg match.

The NFA President, Executive Committee, Secretary General and the entire family of football in Namibia hereby honors and celebrates the life of Robson Robbie Savage who passed away on 20 July 2017.

Robbie has been part of the football family and has over the years been recognized with an array of accolades and acknowledgments for his contribution to the general atmosphere at football events.

Robbie was dedicated and super committed to the Brave Warriors in particular and Namibia football generally. We are grateful that football could share Robbie with the greater sports fraternity in the country whom we are sure will also remember him for his ever present support at their events. We are however sure that our colleagues across the broad spectrum of sport in the country will agree with us that he was “Namibian Football” first before anything else.

Robbie was in Gabon when Namibia won qualification to its maiden Cup of Nation, he was in Burkina Faso when the Braves took part in the final competition, he was in Ghana when the national team qualified for its second edition of Africa’s flagship competition and he was in South Africa when Namibia won the COSAFA Senior challenge.

In his honor, the NFA will dedicate, as suggested by The Patron of NFA, HE Dr. Hage G. Geingob, the African Nations Championship Third Round Second Leg match against the Comoros taking place on Sunday, 20th August, to the memory of this football icon. The match will serve as a final opportunity for football people from all walks of life to pay special tribute to a man who did not have much himself but yet gave so much memories to all of us, at his favorite venue, the Sam Nujoma Stadium.

May his soul rest in peace and may his spirit inspire Namibians to rally behind their teams with unreserved devotion.
