Fistball teams ready to battle it out this weekend

The Bank Windhoek Fistball National Cup Tournament will take place this Saturday at the Cohen Fistball Club (CFC) at 8:30 in Windhoek. On match day, hosts CFC 1 and Swakopmund Fistball Club (SFC) 2 are favourites for the Category A and B titles. The Fistball Association of Namibia's Media Officer, Helmo Minz, said that CFC 1 and SFC 2 are defending champions of the national tournament in their respective categories. “However, the newly crowned League B Champions, Sport Klub Windhoek (SKW) 2, will be motivated to be another title contender," said Minz.

Comprising eight teams, the Bank Windhoek Fistball National Cup Tournament will place teams in groupings based on the placements of the previous tournament. CFC's first team, who have won the national tournament six times in the last seven years, will meet CFC 2, SKW 2, and Team 2011 in Group A. “Team 2011 will consist of players that represented Namibia at the 2011 World Championship in Austria," said Minz.

Group B will see SKW 1, SFC 1, SFC2, and CFC 3 play against each other for top honours. Minz added that SKW 1 should be more assertive than in the play-offs; hence the record champions can also have legitimate hopes of winning the state cup.

The Bank Windhoek Fistball National Cup Tournament will also see two youth teams from SKW compete against each other. The awards ceremony of the national tournament and the league will take place after the finals are settled. Minz concluded by saying that the participating teams are ready for another showdown this weekend.
