Namibia Premier League (NPL) new boys Young African Football Club will this weekend reaffirm their seriousness in taking premiership football to all parts of the country when they host the Kasi Classic Preseason Tournament at the Legare Stadium in Gobabis tomorrow.
Expected to be one of the biggest pre-season tournament staged outside the capital, this weekend’s Kasi Tournament will feature some of the NPL’s big names, led by champions Tigers, Black Africa and Unam FC, alongside hosts Young African FC.
Tournament organiser and owner of Young African Mali Ngarizeno said local football lovers from the Cattle Town of Gobabis and surrounding areas should brace themselves for a weekend of thrilling football action.
