Social league has its virtues

The Social League was started at the urging of players, who could not continue in the competitive league of the Namibian Football Association (NFA).

Around the country, there are a lot of companies that employ soccer players who cannot train on a full-time basis due to their late working hours.

The companies enrolled in the Social League can thus have a place in which their employees can be active.

Currently, most of the participants think of the games over the weekend and try their best to limit their alcohol consumption. The league keeps growing in numbers and currently has 51 teams.

The league is played in groups and even if you are last you, stand a chance to win something. It also provides aspiring referees the chance to become match-officials.

Above and beyond that, the Social League also provides a platform where people can get to know each other by meeting on the soccer field. Players start o¬ not knowing anything about soccer, but they improve so much over time.

Even though the activities are geared toward having fun, there are a lot of prizes to be won.

There are trophies and medals to be won, while the Cup section is where teams also receive money and medals. In the shield section, there are trophies and medals to be won with the bowl being the bottom group, where winners also receive trophies and medals.

The new season might include teams from Walvis Bay and Swakopmund and the league is looking to start a netball and volleyball leagues.

The only hold up now is getting administrators that can help in running those leagues. So contrary to popular belief, there are benefits in playing in a social league.
