On Wednesday, 05 April 2023, Erongo RED handed over a sponsorship of soccer and netball kits to the Erongo Regional Team at a joint handover ceremony held at the Office of the Governor.
The Governor of Erongo Region, Hon. Neville Andre received the sponsorship on behalf of the team. Honourable Andre thanked Erongo RED and Rossing Uranium for contributing positively towards the development of sports in the region through initiatives such as this. “There are a lot of social ills such as drugs and alcohol abuse that affects the youth, especially this age group. However, participating in sports encourages and motivates them to remain focused,” said Honourable Andre.
Honourable Andre also thanked the Chairpersons of both the football and the netball teams, and the coaches for the time and energy they invested in getting the teams ready for the tournament. The Governor also congratulated the players for being part of the selected team to represent the region and urged them to remain inspired even they encounter sportsmanship challenges. “We, including the sponsors, are hopeful that you will bring the cups home,” concluded Hon. Andre.
Speaking on behalf of Erongo RED was Ms Georgina Wohler, the Corporate Communication Officer, who stated that, “at Erongo RED, sports development is one of our CSR pillars and we are committed to playing our part in supporting sports in the region”.
