Local football fans are urged to buy tickets and come early for Sunday’s clash against Comoros to avoid long queues and possible injuries and missing the action of the crucial 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) qualifiers final round second leg.

Namibia Football Association (NFA) head of match-day security Tovey Hoebeb advise fans to get to Computicket at Shoprite and Checkers stores countrywide soonest and purchase tickets for N$ 30 each.

“The tickets are available and we need to have full house on Sunday and thus I urge fans to get these tickets as soon as possible. As football lovers we should do away with the mentality of getting tickets late and going to the stadium late and also hoping to get them at the stadium. It creates safety problem for you because people are shoving and pushing. Let’s get the tickets early”, Hoebeb urges.

The gates will open at 12h00 on Sunday and kickoff is set for 15h00 at the majestic Sam Nujoma Stadium and Hoebeb further explains the logistics on the day.

“ Once you are in you can’t go out and we will not be selling tickets on match day to avoid the security risk we encountered problems. Please get your ticket now and come early and enjoy the game. The team needs you and your safety is our concern hence this advice”, says Hoebeb.

The Brave Warriors will play Comoros, trailing 2-1 from the first leg and need to win at least 1-0 to qualify for the 2018 Confederation of African Football (CAF) local-based players’ competition, the African Nations Championship (CHAN) to be played in Kenya from 11 January to 02 February.

The match will be officiated by a Zambian delegation with referee Wisdom Chewe to take charge. The NFA will also use the game to pay tribute to the late Robbie Savage who was laid to rest on 29 July.
