MTC Namibia have increased prize money of the Netball Namibia League as the telecommunications company furthers their investment in the sport.
Prize money will increase from N$45 000 to N$250 000 for the league winners, runners-up will receive N$150 000 and the third-placed team will take home N$100 000.
Secretary-General of Netball Namibia, Imelda Nerongo, says: “MTC is happy with the overall administration of the league, and this is a direct investment for the girl child future.
“For us, as Netball Namibia, this is a good confidence boost to our administration since they have acknowledged the fact that netball in Namibia needed a league like this to inspire girls,” Nerongo added.
At the end of this month, Netball Namibia will host a prize giving ceremony to honour outstanding players from the inaugural season.
