FNB Namibia has a long and proud history of supporting the development of many sport codes in Namibia. “Our relationship with the codes we sponsor has always been one of belief in the credibility of the vision and plans of our beneficiaries, and financial support and financial services comprise the basis of our sponsor engagement”, says Tracy Eagles, Chief Marketing Officer of the group. “Similarly, our relationship with the Sports Commission is strong and the vision of a healthy Namibian sports industry is shared and respected”.

Recent internal issues within the Rugby Sports Code have unfortunately diminished the excitement and pride that should be being experienced by Namibians with the country’s qualifying for World Cup 2019. In the interests of the development of the sport, it’s players and supporters, FNB Namibia said it encourages the urgent alignment of Rugby’s administration to all legal premises upon which the code exists.

Says Eagles, “Our interest is, and always will be, in supporting sound professional development opportunities for aspiring and dedicated sportsmen and sportswomen. We are committed to supporting approved structures that intend delivering to this vision.”
