Gladiators receive NDTC sponsorship

The Namibia Diamond Trading Company (NDTC) on Thursday here, donated N.dollars 200 000 to the Brave Gladiators to support the team towards their hygiene and sanitary needs while on international duties. The sponsorship was announced by NDTC CEO Brent Eiseb, who said that the company is committed to empowering and uplifting Namibian ambassadors who put the country on the global map. 'Women's football in Namibia is one of the least financially supported sport codes, impacting its growth and the performance of the national team. Our investment in women's football is not just about scoring goals but also about inspiring the next generation of female athletes in Namibia,' he said. Eiseb added that the Brave Gladiators' victories resonate far beyond the pitch and echo in the hearts of every Namibian, instilling a sense of national pride that transcends borders. 'By sponsoring the Namibia Women's National Football Team, we are investing in the dreams and aspirations of these athletes who are not merely players but also trailblazers, and breaking barriers,' Eiseb said. The sponsorship of N.dollars 200 000 was used to support the team's hygiene and sanitary products, with N.dollars 20 000 allocated to this purpose. The remaining amount was shared among the 34-member squad that represented the country in the Olympic qualifiers and African Nations Cup qualifiers from August to October 2023. Eiseb stated that the women players' achievements in the field of play should be celebrated like the diamonds they are, also ensuring that their dreams and aspirations are not only valid but also realised.
