The Namibia Football Association (NFA) Technical Centre has received floodlights from FIFA as an initiative to help develop the football game in the country with the installation to be completed in August.

The Technical Centre was built in 2010 and recently got the much needed boost as floodlights will be installed to allow for night events at the venue.

NFA Secretary General Barry Rukoro is excited about the new development and says that having the floodlights at the centre will definitely increase productivity and efficiency; it will also help reduce the pressure placed on National teams.

“We try to seize the daylight in terms of training and all activities taking place at the centre, Both the Men and Women national teams have to train during the day and time is limited. This reposes great pressure on the teams. Currently the Brave Warriors team can’t use the centre on Wednesday’s for training because the Girls Centre is using it for the NFA Girls and Goals League. The team is forced to go look for a training facility elsewhere”, Rukoro explains.

Rukoro commended FIFA for providing the NFA with the funds to commission various programmes for the good of the game.

“Without their involvement and generosity, we would not be able to aim high and reach our potential. We truly appreciate the continuous support from FIFA, their contributions has dramatically helped us to improve the game”. He stresses.

The objective of any FIFA development activity is to ultimately improve the football experience of those who wish to play the game.
