The Organisers of the 2018 Debmarine Namibia Cup is urging football fans to get their tickets early for the quarterfinals set for the Sam Nujoma Stadium on Friday night and Saturday with the final eight teams battling it for places in the semifinals of the lucrative cup competition.

The 2018 Debmarine Namibia Cup quarterfinals will start on Friday night with Civics and Tura Magic facing off at 19h00 and on Saturday there more games will be played. At 15h00, Golden Bees will confront Black Africa before UNAM and Blue Waters clash at 17h00. The final quarterfinal match will be between Eleven Arrows and African Stars at 19h00.

The winners will advance to the semifinals to be contested on 12-13 May to decide the last two sides to meet in the Final on 26 May 2018.

Entrance tickets for this weekend's action are available on Computicket and at Football House for N$ 30 each.

“Fans need to get their tickets now from Computicket outlets at Shoprite and Checkers as well as at Football House to avoid unnecessary shoving at the stadium on Friday and Saturday. The football looks very promising and we urge football lovers to get their tickets on time. Last minute-ticket purchase always comes with undesired consequences of frustrations and we need to avoid that. We are also making this plea as a responsible FA to avoid possible stampedes at the stadium resulting from late purchase of tickets”, says Barry Rukoro, Secretary General of the Namibia Football Association.

In the first edition of the competition last year, Gobabis’s Legare Stadium hosted the quarterfinals and after some reverting football action, eight goals were scored as Mighty Gunners, Young Chiefs, Young African, Tura Magic and Eastern Chiefs advanced to the semifinals. Young African eventually won the Cup by beating Gunners in the final, also held in Gobabis.

The overall winners will walk away with a cheque worth N$ 500 000 while the losing finalist receives N$ 250 000 and each losing semi-finalist gets N$ 150 000.

All individual awards will amount to N$ 95 000, that includes N$ 2000 for the best player of every match leading up to the final. Each Man of the Match also get to choose a charity organization of his choice that will receive N$ 2000 from Debmarine Namibia as part of giving back and enriching lives beyond the field of play.
